Tech Connect: A Free Assistive Technology Resource

In their continuing mission to create informative and entertaining educational resources to individuals who need them, Vision Forward is launching a new assistive technology resource. This new site will bring all of their content to a single easy-to-navigate platform, offering access to both the live Tech Connect sessions and professional webinars. Tech Connect events, held free of charge every other Thursday at 11 am CST (12 noon EST), feature a live demonstration of an assistive technology product, followed by a question and answer session and general discussion. The professional webinars are eligible for ACVREP (Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals) for CE, making it easy to get continuing education credits all in one place. With a free account, users have access to the ever-growing library of webinars and produced videos. Choose the webinars category to browse current offerings or choose the “Search or Browse Our Video Content” link from the main navigation to see a searchable list of all existing videos. For those who only want to see videos about the iPhone, for example, just type “iPhone” into the search and the video list will be filtered. You may also join Tech Connect live sessions or watch past episodes. Please visit the Vision Forward Association log in page to register for and access this new resource.
