Working with people who are blind or have low vision


Teacher: Jason. Look come and sit
down here Teacher: Today’s lesson is following on from
last weeks. (fade out) Teacher: Leonardo de Vinci. Can anyone remember some of the things Leonardo was famous for? So there was artwork, painting, and someone said submarines and helicopters and someone said the Vitruvian man. Very good, that’s what we are talking about today Teacher: The Vitruvian man was Leonardo’s attempt to show the proportions of the body in its natural space. I have a picture here of the Vitruvian man Now I have some worksheets that I’m going
to hand out and this is some homework I’d like you to do. So here you go. If any of you have trouble doing these or you need assistance, you need to alert me by next Wednesday Student A: What references do we use? Teacher: On the bottom of the sheets I have
handed out there are some references written down there Student B: I’ve got a really good book on
this stuff if anyone wants to borrow it. Teacher: The other students can talk to you
after the class. Jason: Can I speak to you about the homework after class? Student: He’s gone mate Voice over: How do you think this class might
have been made more useful to Jason? Teacher: Hi Jason. I’m Peter, your teacher.
Can I give you a hand there? Jason: Yes thank you, if you don’t mind Teacher: OK. Look, there’s a chair here.
You right there? Jason: Yes, thank you. Teacher: Did you get the electronic versions
of the work sheets and homework that I sent you Jason: Yes, thank you Teacher: OK that’s good. Before we go on, would you mind telling the class is there any way that we can help you in your learning here? Jason: As you know I’m blind however it would be appreciated if you could say your names when you speak so I can get to know you by your voices. Thanks Teacher: OK Teacher: Today’s lesson follows on from
last weeks. We’re on… (Fades out) Teacher: The Vitruvian
man was Leonardo’s attempt to show the proportions of the body in its natural space. Now I have a picture of the Vitruvian man here that will explain what is going on. On this you can see there’s a square and
a man standing in the square with his hands out to the side. Also there is a picture on top of that picture of the same man standing in the same position but with his legs slightly apart and his arms raised. In this he touches the circle. Can you see how that works here? I am going to give out some questions which
I would like you to do for homework. Jason these will be on the worksheets I gave
you. Have you got those still? Jason: Yes. I have somewhere Teacher: OK I can give you another copy if
you’d like one. Just to make sure. I would like those done by next
weeks class. Is everyone OK with that? Anyone have any issues? Student A: Hi. This is Toby, What references
do we use? Teacher: They’re on the paper, I’ve given
you and Jason, they’re on the stuff I sent to you electronically Student B: This is Jenna. I’ve got a really
good book on this stuff. Would anyone like to borrow it? Teacher: Perhaps email the details
to me and I’ll send them out after class. Teacher: I’m leaving now. If anyone has any
questions they can… (Fades out) Voice over: What else made this class better? What other strategies could you use?
