Computer Education for Deaf Youngsters: A Mutual Effort by the University of California and the California School for the Deaf in Berkeley.
Hickok, Treacy A.
The California School for the Deaf (CSD) conducted a study to familiarize students and faculty with available programs at Lawrence Hall of Science and to see if the instruction and teaching philosophy used to introduce the programs was adequate for students with impaired hearing. The pilot study was positive, so objectives were formed to adapt current computer programs. Objectives included: (1) improvement of teacher attitude and ability concerning the computer, (2) improvement of student attitude and ability through training, and (3) an evaluation of the results of the year's project. The program was determined a success since there was a significant increase in the use of the computer by students and faculty at CSD. Appendixes include a survey of student and teacher opinion, samples of lessons, graphs indicating usage, and teacher opinion surveys. (Author/DS)
