For All Students Everywhere: Technology Means Independence in a Beautiful Digital World
Childress, Tina
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v16 p56-59 2015
Technology benefits everyone, but perhaps especially deaf and hard of hearing students; it allows them direct access to the world around them and continued connection with others. Technology can mean increased access, independence, and self-reliance. The T-coil and all of the cables and accessories that come with hearing devices are essential for those that use hearing technology. In this article, Tina Childress shares some of the options she has discovered in this new techy world including wearable technology, alert signaling devices, helpful systems to combat environmental noise, and phones and Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) ratings.
