Special classroom designed for the visually impaired

A special classroom equipped with information technologies tailored to the needs of the visually-impaired has been designed in Cuba.Its was devised by Ariel Rodríguez, himself visually-impaired, who teaches information technologies at a computer club for youngsters, which are referred to in Cuba as Youth Clubs.

The idea for this classroom was the basis of his thesis for his Master's Degree. Rodríguez said that in the special classroom they have appropriate software, a digital library and well-trained teachers, so that the visually-impaired can learn at the same rate as their fellow students.
