Research on Computer-Mediated Instruction for Students with High Incidence Disabilities
Fitzgerald, Gail; Koury, Kevin; Mitchem, Katherine
Journal of Educational Computing Research, v38 n2 p201-233 2008
In this literature review, the effects of computer-mediated instruction on the learning of students with mild and moderate disabilities are synthesized from 1996 onward that extends our previously published synthesis for the period 1987-1995. Empirically based findings are reviewed and discussed in the basic skills areas of reading, writing, and mathematics, as well as in the content areas of social studies and science. Results are interpreted and discussed regarding traditional teaching methodologies in special education as well as changes in the instructional ecology and expectations for students created by the inclusion movement and reforms in general education. Limitations found in the reviewed studies are described and future directions for research in special education technology for students with high incidence disabilities are identified.
