Reflect

3

Has it been easy? How many blocks have you recognized correctly? Would you know how to fit them together to make a program or read it? How do you think a person with blindness or low vision feels? How do you think you can learn or what kind of help do you need to learn?

Ideas

  • You can use the “I have low vision” app to understand the different visual impairments that exist and how they are often combined with each other.

  • Try to see through the application: a text in a magazine or a screen, a video or a photo, recognize objects in the environment, recognize and orient yourself in space, recognize the blocks and make a program, etc.
