Connecting with Technology is an adapted curriculum developed by the CNIB Foundation, addressing the unique needs of blind and partially sighted technology users.

December 16 Session: Explore Your World with the WeWALK SmartCane. For centuries, the white cane  has remained virtually unchanged. By equipping a white cane with modern technology, WeWALK improves safety and independence for visually impaired travelers, allowing them full and equal participation in everyday life. WeWALK acts as a new handle when attached to the long cane and was designed to feel natural, allowing for normal cane usage.  Additionally, the free WeWALK app is available for iOS and Android, and includes low vision mapping and exploration features. Tune in as the WeWALK creators describe how their product works and even take it for a spin.

This group runs via Zoom web conference on December 16 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Pacific Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.

Please be advised that you must register for all programs. We kindly ask you to RSVP a minimum of 1 full business day before the start of the program.
