The first of the two guides presented in this document is intended for preservice and inservice teacher trainers who want to include technology as an integral part of special education training. The guide is divided into five sections. The first summarizes planning issues for university-based programs. The second explores the planning of inservice training programs. The third section describes collaborative efforts among education agencies and institutions of higher education. The fourth section includes planning ideas for individual training events, whether workshops, classes, or seminars. The final section discusses outcomes, including the competencies of training. Inserts throughout the guide provide the thoughts and ideas of experienced trainers. Appendixes include listings of technology competencies for special education teachers used by the University of Kentucky, State of Michigan, and Trenton State College (New Jersey) and forms allowing teachers to evaluate their own technology competence. The second guide offers guidelines for designing any of five types of training materials: authoring courses; desktop publishing; hypermedia; video; computer instruction; and interactive videodisc materials. References accompany each chapter. Also included are lists of trainer recommended software products and training resources in the areas of word processing, desktop publishing, authoring, presentation software, graphics, periodicals, and professional associations.
