Integrating Technology in Program Development for Children/Youth with E/BD.
Wilder, Lynn K., Ed.; Black, Sharon, Ed.
This monograph highlights how educational technology can benefit students at risk of school failure, particularly students with emotional/behavioral disorders (E/BD). It discusses how technology can improve student motivation to learn, increase engagement in learning, improve academic outcomes, meet the needs of tactile/kinesthetic learners, link incarcerated youth with community support services, increase preservice teacher and inservice learning opportunities, and assist with instructional decision-making. The monograph includes six papers that present research-based technology solutions devised to meet the challenges of training professionals, program development for students with E/BD, and using technology in interventions for students with E/BD. Papers include: (1)"Introduction: Technology, The Great Equalizer" (Lynn K. Wilder); (2) "Project PEGS! Interactive CDs for Practice in Effective Guidance Strategies: Using Technology To Train Teachers in Applying Positive Behavioral Interventions" (Mary M. Wood and others); (3) "Using Interactive Media To Teach Behavior Intervention Planning" (Carl J. Liaupsin and others); (4) "Delivering 500 Provide and Practical Interventions through CD-ROM and Online Technologies" (Ray Beck); (5) "Use of PowerPoint To Increase Reading and Language Skills; A Research-Based Approach" (Francie Murry); and (6) "Hypermedia and Students with E/BD: Developing Untapped Talents and Fostering Success" (Matthew J. Mayer and Peter E. Leone). (Papers include references.) (CR)
