2014 Tactile Workshop
Existing and potential volunteers were invited to attend a brief workshop introducing iC2 PrepHouse Limited, the work we do and the assistive technology we employ to help our students. This Volunteer Recruitment exercise resulted in more than 10 sign-ups. We had 3 existing volunteers attending and hence a total of 14 participants attended the workshop.
The same group of volunteers from above were invited for an additional workshop on resource production for visually-impaired children and youths. However, not all were able to attend but some who did also brought their friends and family members. Additional pointers such as explaining the difference between 2D representations of car (2 wheels) vs the actual car (4 wheels) were given and participants were given the opportunity to practice producing tactile resources.
