Special Educators' Perceptions of Priorities for Computer Use.
In an examination of the opinions and needs of special educators regarding computer instructional uses for learning disabled students, 353 teachers, including special education and regular class educators, responded to a questionnaire about concerns and perceptions of computer uses for learning disabled students. Results indicated the continuing need for teacher training in basic computer literacy and noted priorities set by sample teachers for instructional computer use. Highly rated priorities included computer use for drill and practice activities and for increasing motivation to learn, while lower priority was reported for computer uses related to student assessment and evaluation of progress. Comparison with the National Education Association teacher survey were discussed, along with implications for future directions in teacher training. (Author/CL)
