Fanshawe, Melissa ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-7399-7663 (2020) Being blind when the world is designed for those who can see; the importance of the Expanded Core Curriculum. In: Blind/ Vision Impaired Masterclass Series 2020, 6 March 2020, Sydney, Australia.


Abstract

21st Century classrooms are filled with posters, electronic whiteboards, timetables and multimedia presentations. This exciting display can capture important concepts and notices, and display them as a visual reminder for students. However, for students who are blind or have a vision impairment, access may be limited. This session discusses the Expanded Core Curriculum. What it is and why it is important for students with no or low vision. We discuss the barriers that prevent implementing the ECC in schools, including knowledge, time and advocacy.
