The "Hungry Fingers" way to tactile graphics

This one-day workshop focuses on developing blind children's understanding of spatial concepts and increasing their confidence with Braille and tactile illustrations. On the basis that effective learning involves direct experience, a set of tactile activity kits will be presented. These involve carefully selected educational toys, real objects and models which inspire young blind learners to engage in activities such as counting, sorting, building, transforming, copying, comparing size, shape and location of objects. All activites are linked with appropriate exercises in English Braille.
