Computer Applications in Deaf Education.
The paper examines applications of computers in deaf education, noting three major functional areas: (1) the computer as a tutor; (2) the computer as a tool; and (3) the computer as a tutee. Software in the tutor mode (computer assisted instruction) is reviewed, and the need for software in the language arts area is noted. Computer applications that bridge the tutor and tutee modes (including authoring systems and programing languages) are also noted. Computer tools include word processing and database programs, which may be incorporated into science or social studies curricula. The special appropriateness of LOGO for hearing impaired children is also described. Microcomputers should be viewed as technological instruments that expand a student's intellectual environment.
