The Role of Educational Technology in the Education of Handicapped Learners.
Rothenberg, Sidney; Vastbinder, Sherry
A rationale for using technology in the education of the handicapped is presented in the monograph and specific areas for developing this use in the future are proposed. The monograph begins with a discussion of instruction: how it has been viewed, how it is viewed today, and how it should be conceptualized to accomodate handicapped learners in the future. Following this is a discussion of the terms, "instructional technology" and "handicapped learner." Next, the discussion of the instructional process, instructional technology, and the handicapped learner provide a basis for a discussion of the role of educational technology in special education. The concluding section of the monograph focuses on three major areas which need to be developed to facilitate the use of educational technology in special education: instructional design, the learner, and the teacher.
