Using Internet-Based Applications to Increase Collaboration among Stakeholders in Special Education
Riggleman, Samantha; Buchter, Jennifer M.
Journal of Special Education Technology, v32 n4 p232-239 Dec 2017
Input from parents of children with disabilities is highly valuable; however, barriers such as lack of time or travel can hinder the partnership between parents and stakeholders. Internet-based applications (e.g., Google Groups, Google Drive, and OneDrive) can alleviate some of the difficulties in collaborating. This article describes the use and benefits of Internet-based applications to support collaboration between teachers, families, and other providers working with students with disabilities. How to collaborate through these apps will be examined with practical examples. Implications for security and confidentiality will be considered. Directions for future research will be discussed.
