DOWNLOAD THE APP 

SEEING THE INVISIBLE is a mobile and tablet software for Android and IOS developed within the framework of the Erasmus Plus Project “Seeing the invisible: inclusive digitalization of low vision students in school education”, allows teachers to teach their classes directly through their students’ devices and in a format completely adapted to people with low vision.

The app is aimed at primary and secondary teachers It is a very useful tool when they must implement blended or distance modalities. Also for reinforcement teachers who must support the training of students with low vision who live at a great distance. It also serves to generate a support network among teachers who are be able to share their adapted documents and exchange experiences. It can also be used in the classroom itself, facilitating fully adapted face-to-face learning. All this through a systematic, simple and guided process that allows the teacher to:

   1. Design and generate the didactic units of their subject and the sessions that compose it, in a virtual and guided format that provides guidelines and models to follow.

   2. Generate virtual classrooms, to which you can invite your students or those you decide to convene, where the generated sessions appears automatically, being able to teach them synchronously or asynchronously.

   3. This tool integrates an advisory service so that teachers with students with low vision can turn to experts to support them and answer their questions.

It is not an e-learning platform, nor a website, nor a resource or support material, but an educational tool that allows adding resources provided by ICT to the digitalization of teaching adapted to low vision.


BENEFITS FOR THE TEACHERS

Design and generate didactic units adapted to low vision. This software allows them to access guidelines and models to follow so that they can easily create their own teaching units from the application.

Advisory service. They have access to advice and support services provided by experts who help them throughout the process of adapting the classes to low vision.

Generate virtual classrooms. From the software they  are able to create virtual classrooms and send access to students.

It facilitates access to virtual education for students in a more inclusive and egalitarian way.

This is an e-learning course intended to complement the training of primary and secondary school teachers through an innovative methodology, to integrate students with low vision caused by Albinism or Aniridia.

This course provides teachers with the knowledge and methodologies necessary to adapt their classes to the needs of students with low vision in order to achieve inclusion in the classroom.

USER AREA

This section is accessible to all registered users in the application. From here, teachers have the opportunity to:

1.   Design and generate the didactic units of your subject.

2.   Generate virtual classrooms to teach classes in an accessible and inclusive way for students with low vision.

3.   Access an advisory service for teachers with students with low vision.

4.   Access resources generated within the framework of this Erasmus Plus project such as: a virtual course for teachers with students with low vision and open educational resources (applications created for educational support in the classroom of students with low vision in primary and secondary school).

This section links to the Virtual course for teachers: Inclusive digitalization in school education, developed within the framework of the Erasmus Plus Project “Seeing the invisible: inclusive digitalization of low vision students in school education”.

  • OERs

A page dedicated to useful Open Educational Resources adapted to the low vision of students with albinism and aniridia. This resources have been developed within the framework of the Erasmus Plus Project “Seeing the invisible: inclusive digitalization of low vision students in school education”.

These OER have a flexible format to be able to work online through computer, tablet or mobile. They develop solutions to very problematic issues for students with low vision in subjects such as mathematics, in which the complete perception of formulas presents serious complications. These resources encourage participation in equity of all students, eliminating gaps and favoring inclusion.

  • FORUM

In this section users can participate in the community by creating new threads or posting/commenting on existing ones (including the ones that they have created themselves).
