Amit Sharma

Amit works in a government aided school in New Delhi.  His Ph.D work focusses on ‘Teaching and learning of science amongst students with visual impairments, and inclusive education’. One part of his study looked at the aspirations of the visually impaired students while another study explored the questions raised by students while observing diagrams and how students with visual impairments represent their visualization.
