Help for the Low Vision Student in the classroom 
We have many low vision students, sitting in the classroom and unable to see what the teacher is doing when she uses the document camera, or 
projector or computer to project images up on the board, in front of the room.

There is a very inexpensive way to combat this problem. A simple VGA 
splitter and an extra monitor is all that is needed. An extra monitor 
can be connected to these other pieces of technology and brought right 
to where the student is sitting. The student can now easily participate 
with the rest of his peers, take notes as needed and complete work with 
more understanding of what is occurring in the front of the room.

Complete instructions on how to put this all together is just a click away, go to Low Vision: and look for the lesson on Low Vision- Viewing information in the distance with an extra monitor
