Learning Disabled Students and Computers: A Teacher's Guide Book.
Metzger, Merrianne; And Others
This booklet is provided as a guide to teachers working with learning disabled (LD) students who are interested in using computers as a teaching tool. The computer is presented as a powerful option to enhance educational opportunities for LD children. The author outlines the three main modes in educational computer use (tutor, tool, and tutee) and shows how the computer meets the LD student's curricular needs in the three modes. The use of a computer with LD students allows the child to experience success in mastering skills while freeing the teacher for other work. Teacher education in computer use is presented as an important key in the development of computer education. The booklet provides a discussion of software and hardware definitions and needs, and equipment selection. A list of references, including magazines, books, organizations, networks, research, and bibliographies, is provided. (MD)
