Royal Blind Learning Hub offers resources for working with visually impaired students. Browse the glossary to find an extensive listing of different types of visual impairment, resources, and terminology. Free online screencasts offer information about teaching blind and partially sighted literacy and science. Check out the How To videos for short presentations sharing how to use a Brailler, assist blind runners, and more. The site was created in Scotland, so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English.

Challenge students to find photos (legally permitted to be reproduced), and narrate the day in the life of someone with a visual impairment. Have students use Voicethread, reviewed here, to create this multimedia presentation. Voicethread allows you to narrate a picture. Have older students take this a step further and discuss different causes of blindness and visual impairments.

Public School Review provides information about public school systems and individual schools around the United States. Choose your state and nearest large city to begin or use the keyword search to locate any area desired. Learn about public schools nearby as well as available charter, private, and preK offerings. Information includes total students, teacher/student ratio, diversity statistics, free lunch percentages, and more. Our editors noticed some inconsistencies in this tool. So while it is useful, you may want to use it along with another similar site.

Share information about your school with parents during school visits. Have students compare and contrast schools within your district. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram, reviewed here, to compare and contrast information. Take it further and have students brainstorm ideas on why there are differences between schools and propose changes to provide equity.
