The Possibility of Learning Curved Mirrors' Structure by a Normal Blind Inborn Students
Bulbul, M. Sahin
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Turkish Physics Society (26th, Bodrum, Turkey, Sep 24-27, 2009)
To take a physics course blind students must be assisted using teaching methods and aids adapted to their own perception capabilities. Touchable objects are very important for them because they have huge difficulties to visualize the third spatial dimension. However, appropriate resources and methods for blind students are not yet available. In this study, the researcher developed a material, KAGOAD, to use for curved mirrors' structure. Blind students may easily use it by touching and material what they learned about principles of curved mirrors. It was tested whether they can solve a University Entrance Exam question. Success of normal blind inborn students indicated that being blind inborn is not a barrier for learning light concept on curved mirrors.
