Designing by Special Needs Students
Yuill, Ronald D.
Technology Teacher, v67 n8 p16-18 May-Jun 2008
Since a number of his special needs students have been in his class for three years, the author tries to continually create new activities that will challenge them. This article describes an activity wherein the author and his students design their own game with their own instructions. This activity encouraged students to learn about designing, planning, and producing a new product. Many of these students would not have had the opportunity for this type of learning enrichment if it had not been offered in technology education.
