EagleEyes is a mouse replacement system for the computer that helps children and adults with profound disabilities interact and learn by using a computer.  These individuals are most often non-verbal, paralyzed, and at most have a YES/NO method of communicating or are completely locked-in. There are hundreds of  EagleEyes systems distributed in the USA and Canada, in schools, non-profit organizations and individuals homes.

EagleEyes was developed at Boston College by Computer Science Professor Jim Gips in 1994. In 2005, The Opportunity Foundation of America began a partnership with the Boston College EagleEyes Project and signed a formal license agreement to manufacture, distribute and provide training for the technology. The Opportunity Foundation of America was chosen by Boston College because of our commitment to distributing this technology as a non-profit organization. We strive to keep the cost of the EagleEyes technology to a minimum for those in need.

About Derek Larson:

If educators can find ways to effectively harness technology into their teaching, they will be better able to reach their students and help them catch the excitement of learning. This is one of Derek's goals as he works with teachers in rural districts across Southwestern Utah.

 

He was awarded the 2014 UCET Outstanding Young Educator of the Year, an award presented to an outstanding young educator, in the first ten years of their teaching career, who demonstrates vision, innovation, action, and transformation using technology to improve teaching and learning.

Earning the CETL certification helps education technology leaders demonstrate they have mastered the knowledge and skills needed to define the vision for and successfully build 21st-century learning environments in their school districts. In Fall of 2017, Derek earned the Google Certified Educator Levels 1 and 2 along with his Google Certified Administrator certifications, showcasing his ability to effectively use the G-Suite toolset as well as effectively administer the back-end of the G-Suite productivity system.
