Dublinske, Stan; And Others
The "Technology in the Classroom" project developed, field tested, and evaluated the effectiveness of self-instructional materials that would improve the technology skills and knowledge of families and regular/special education professionals, in order to integrate assistive technologies into the educational programs of children (ages 2 to 7) with severe disabilities. Tasks accomplished by the project included: identifying needed instructional content, developing and packaging instructional modules, ascertaining the usefulness of field test procedures and instructional materials, verifying the usefulness of instructional materials through a national field test, and completing and disseminating the instructional materials. Project products included a communication module; education module; positioning, access, and mobility module; listening and hearing supplement; and videotape titled "Assistive Technology: We Can Do It!." This final report discusses project goals and activities. Appendices comprise most of the report and include copies of survey forms, content outlines for the "Technology in the Classroom" modules, a module evaluation form, and materials describing the project.
