Hoz, Ron; Alon, Asnat
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v95 n5 p304-07 May 2001
This study examined the learning tactics and knowledge representations used by five high school students with blindness while attempting to acquire information from text (presented in either Braille or audiotape). Tactics included re-reading; summarizing in writing, mentally, or orally; identifying ideas; and elaborating with mental images. Knowledge representations included use of linear ordering and semantic networks. (Contains references.) (DB)
