One of DIAGRAM’s new subcontracts officially launches with a survey on students with visual impairments’ use of 3D printed materials. This is the first step in a yearlong project that aims to gather and report on information from professionals who work with students who are visually impaired. This information will provides insights regarding the viability and practical application of 3D printing as a means of conveying visual information in a tactile format. The research will nurture a growing collection of tools that aim to maintain equal and timely access to information for today’s student in a multifacted learning environment. If you work with students who are visually impaired, please fill out this survey:   It only takes 10-15 minutes to complete and you will help content creators improve the accessibility of their materials and improve education for all. Please forward the link widely!
