Computer-Assisted Instruction for the Blind and Deaf.
Morgan, James M.
A Title III project was initiated to develop and test a program of computer-assisted instruction (CAI) in mathematics and reading for approximately 400 visually or aurally handicapped students in Cincinnati. Students were identified and given pretests to determine their needs, and their special education teachers were trained to prepare appropriate CAI lesson material and to monitor student progress. During the project's initial year, the achievement of deaf students was analyzed, and attitude scales were administered to teachers, students, and parents. Preliminary results indicated that teachers were able to implement the CAI system with deaf students; that CAI was beneficial for the hearing-impaired; that students, teachers, and parents reacted favorably toward CAI use; and that further hardware and software development will be necessary before CAI can be fully implemented and tested with visually impaired students.
