Why Digital Learning at WSSB?

“This program has made a huge difference for the student that I work with. She has transitioned from doing math only with a sighted parapro as a reader and scriber to independently Brailling her math and working out the problems on her own! This has been huge.

Also in terms of savings for our school, the cost of the program is less than what we were paying for the text in Braille each year. Then at the end of the year, we would be left with a Braille text that we most likely wouldn’t ever use again. In this program, the use of the text is a part of the cost and we will send it back at the end of the year, thereby eliminating waste.

Doing math this way has allowed my student to work at her own pace and to get her questions thoroughly answered by a qualified TVI. I have seen incredible growth in my student. At times it has been frustrating getting the technology to work on our end. But with a little patience, we have been working through that.

Overall, I am thrilled with our experience with this program and look forward to doing it again in the future.”

— By Margaret M Jones, Parapro in Alaska
