Accessibility, Making and Tactile Robotics: Facilitating Collaborative Learning and Computational Thinking for Learners with Visual Impairments

Proceedings thumbnail


This poster focuses on accessibility concerns that learners with visual impairments (LVIs) face in making environments, particularly with contemporary toolkits. This exploratory study was conducted over a three-day summer making workshop with visually impaired high school students to explore some major challenges and potentials of tangible making and robotics platforms, utilizing KIBO as a model. We explored how a tangible coding platform (KIBO) and accessible design modifications affected individual and collaborative group interaction and cognition.
