Visually Impaired Mentally Sighted Congress

We are holding our virtual multiplier event, The VIMS Congress, on the 27th of August, 2020. This multiplier event is going to be one of the most important activities throughout the project as we want to reach as many people as possible in order to change attitudes towards the education of visually impaired students at mainstream schools. With the help of this event, we will be able to reach more than 100 teachers directly and give them a chance to exchange ideas regarding the difficulties they encounter in their classes. What is more, the teachers will get some very practical and useful activities to be used in their classes during the workshops that will be held in different rooms at the conference hall right after the opening and keynote speeches. There will be parallel sessions so that each teacher can get a chance to attend every session. The teachers taking part in this project from the partner organisations will take an active role in the parallel sessions; they will share their experiences with their colleagues and give information about the technological devices, strategies and activities to be used while teaching visually impaired students.
