Educator Lucia Hasty describes best practices for including tactile graphics within textbooks and classroom activities, in these videos produced by Perkins School for the Blind. She explains the differences between visual and tactile learning styles, and notes that tactile learning is not simply re-presenting printed information in a raised format. In making tactile material for use in the classroom, teachers must be mindful of which information is key to the lesson, and to present it for greatest success.
