Class Experience

In this class, students will:
•	Describe the differences between digital and analog systems
•	Describe different bases for counting and computing
•	Explain the difference between sequential and nonsequential binary
•	Use manipulatives to model digital systems, including braille cells
I have a BA and MA in English from Texas A&M University. While working toward my graduate certificate in Digital Humanities, I spearheaded the project to create Reord, an Old English transliteration addon for the NVDA screen reader. This allows low-vision students to read and study ancient English texts in their original language.

I have been legally blind for most of my life and have been reading braille for 18 years. My scholarly article “Print’s Digital Analog: Amphibious Theories of Braille” is currently under review for an academic volume on the late-medieval English printer William Caxton. For my Girl Scout Gold Project, I wrote and self-published the book Cane and Able: Perspectives for Raising Successful Visually Impaired Children.
Students should bring the following materials to each class meeting: • 1 empty egg carton with 2 rows • At least 6 cotton balls or large pompom balls
Assessment is informal, through class participation.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
