Hands-On Learning Thanks to New Technology

Susan LaVentureI recently came across this interesting article about a high school in Alberta, Canada. They report that they are very pleased with their investment in “lab equipment designed to allow students with low vision, or no vision, to become active participants in chemistry, physics and biology labs.”

It is great to see creative technological solutions to access problems in education. You can really sense the pride from the student who said, “Now, we could do it all ourselves.”

Have any of you seen this technology in action? How up-to-date are the facilities in your child’s school? Have you successfully lobbied for any improvements?
