We were privileged to welcome World Bank Senior Social Development Specialist Kimberly Vilar and Social Development Specialist Annette Omolo to our program in Thika Primary School for the Blind. They came to see how the students with visual impairment are able to access technology.
Our guests interacted with students who were using a variety of computer devices, including desktop, laptop and iPads. Additionally, several primary school pupils were able to demonstrate:
Research skills using google.com/youtube.com on desktop computer. It helps them learn different subject topics for in classes such as science.
Typing skills using MsWord application software.
Using a math game called mathflash they displayed their keyboard skills.
Reading school textbooks using Kindle on iPad, and doing research using iPad too.
Creation of simple websites by use of HTML coding.
Searching for and reading online news online resources i.e. nation.co.ke, standardmedia.co.ke
Our students’ did an outstanding job presenting their computer-skills capabilities using assistive computer technology. They exhibited the value of computer literacy for the blind, inclusion and accessibility with confidence. We are so very proud of all of these students and their instructors and are even more energized to fulfill our mission “to empower the blind and visually impaired students in Africa through assistive computer technology”.
Thank you World Bank for your interest, support and enthusiasm for the inABLE computer labs for the blind. We appreciate the recognition and accolades for the impact and many benefits our programs give to blind and visually impaired youths in Kenya.
