This document presents the results of a major portion of the PEER-funded collaborative research project called the Mwangaza Project. The project is a shared effort between: the Sonification Lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology (“Georgia Tech”) in Atlanta, USA; inABLE, a non-profit organization based in Nairobi, Kenya, and Washington DC, USA; and Kenyatta University, in Nairobi. This research team has completed a two-phase project including (1) a nation-wide survey of the interests, needs, skills, and opinions of blind students and their teachers, with respect to information and communications technology (ICT, aka “technology”); and (2) initial development, deployment, and evaluation of some novel assistive technologies that represent potential new approaches to STEM education for students with vision loss. This report describes the baseline survey of students and teachers.
