Throwback Thursday – #tbt – A Creative Use For Assistive Technology in a Public Library (March 2013)

When I worked in RPL’s Outreach Unit serving Regina’s homebound & visually impaired citizens, one of my projects was to facilitate the purchase and implementation of  a number of pieces of Assistive Technology equipment.

Due to an inquiry from a colleague who was setting up a series of Lego programs, we also realised this equipment could be re-purposed in creative ways.  For example, the example pictured below where a member of the Sask Lego Users Group (SLUG) was able to use one of our magnifiers to help people attending his program (including Pace and I) get a better view of the figures and other creations he was showcasing.
