Alex Tavares is a recent Masters Degree graduate from Harvard University that has developed a revolutionary tool for assisting in teaching Braille to children and newly blind braille learners. Alex talks about what is The Read Read and how his years as a teacher led him to develop this innovative device that he would like to bring to classrooms and into the hands of the braille students.
Alex talks about the experience gained from a 12 week study with students and instructors at The Perkins School for the Blind. Alex tells us about his volunteering and his teaching experience that led to the creation of The Read Read. May 23 was the launch of The Read Read Kickstarter which set a goal of getting 400 devices out to students and classrooms.
