“The World at His Finger Tips”- by Nic Holloway, BLENNZ Hamilton.
In 2013 Jayke’s team successfully applied for a Braille Sense U2 from the Ministry of Education for him. He is a year 7 student and attends Waihi College in the Bay of Plenty. Jayke is the first BLENNZ student to have this technology.
It has opened up a new world for Jayke from both an educational and a social perspective. The Braille Sense U2 is a digital note taker that has all the features of an everyday computer and comes with a visual display and speech output.
With support from his Resource Teacher Vision, Jayke is now taking his next steps into the world of social networking as well as becoming a competent and capable e-learner.
