Computer Graphics and Creativity/Problem Solving Skills with Deaf and Severely Language Disordered Students: Parts I, II, and III.
Rose, Susan; And Others
Three papers focus on applications of computer graphics with deaf and severely language impaired children. The first describes a drawing tablet software that allowed students to use visual and manipulative characteristics to enhance problem solving and creativity skills. Students were thus able to solve problems without the obstacles of language. The second article goes into greater detail about the software, with examples given for tasks of pattern recognition, numeric matrix, coding and decoding, and verbal activities. The software is designed to allow teachers to create graphic symbols for a variety of learning tasks. The final article describes a program in which a microcomputer was used to create visual imagery with children 8-15 years old. Operation requirements for the program are detailed. (CL)
