What is BlindSquare?

BlindSquare is an accessible navigation application for mobile devices. It gives more precise information than Google Maps and can be used to preview routes prior to traveling them. 

 

What do I need before the webinar?

Nothing! If you want to follow along with the webinar as we go through the app, I would update BlindSquare and update the app and your device's software. 

If you do not have BlindSquare, you can download it from the iTunes Store and Google Play.

You do not have to have the app in order to attend the webinar. 

What if you decide you'd rather stick with Google Maps? 

 

How does this work?

1. Sign up. Did we mention, it's FREE?!

2. You will receive a link in your inbox to the webinar meeting. 

3. Show up to your webinar about 10 minutes prior, just to make sure all of your technology works.

4. Sit back, relax, and learn! 

5. Wow your students with your amazing new skills. They might start to think you are a millenial or something. 

Are ACVREP credits available?

YES! But, you have to attend or watch the replay. 

 

Where will the replay be housed?

We will upload the replay to our Professional Development Portal. You will receive a link to sign up to the portal in your email inbox. If you know you can not make it, make sure to enroll in the portal. 

This portal allows us to track your usage so we can report it to ACVREP for your CEU's. 

About the Teacher

 Kassy seated in chair

Hi, I'm Kassy! I am a Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist with over 11 years experience teaching children and adolescents. I am also the face that gets to help this wonderful community grow in to the best O&M Specialists that they can be. Over the past few years, I have focused a lot of my planning time on learning the technology that my students needed to know. When this tech-train left the station a few years ago, I felt hopeless. I could barely keep up with my own work load, let alone add in keeping up with all of the new changes.  

So, I developed better strategies. I devoted my planning periods to mastering the basics, and had my teenage students teach me the rest. (They really ARE the best teachers). 

Through a LOT of trial and error, I came up with teaching strategies that work and are easy for me to implement. 

I taught an in-service on BlindSquare to our team at my former job, and they LOVED it! 

Now, I have updated this training and am opening it up for YOU. 

This is our way of giving back to you, to say "Thank you" for being a part of our growing community here at Allied Independence. We appreciate you and look forward to equipping you with the most cutting edge and impactful teaching strategies around.
