The Use of Technology with Special Needs Students.
Research Progress, v8 n1 Nov 1990
Progress is reported on research conducted in school settings to investigate methods to help students--especially at-risk students--to acquire and use knowledge to solve problems. The methods incorporate principles of learning and instruction derived from basic research on cognition. Specifically, the research involves using microcomputer and videodisc technology in three ways: to develop fluent access to knowledge and skills; to integrate knowledge to support subsequent problem solving; and to help students to be producers, not mere consumers, of knowledge. The enhanced motivation that seems to result from use of these technological innovations is also discussed. (10 references) (JDD)
