Effects of a Teacher-Made Multimedia Program on Teaching Driver Education
Lee, Yeunjoo; Keckley, Kurt
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v2 n5 Article 5 May 2006
Through a case study, the authors share a story of a high school special education teacher who developed a multimedia program to teach driver education (i.e., speed limits and road signs). The high school students (n = 24) had mild disabilities, and were enrolled in a driver education class in a rural high school. The teacher developed the multimedia program using Microsoft PowerPoint. The computer program involved picture and video segments that were captured in the students' familiar environments. As a result of the lessons, the students significantly improved their scores on posttests. In addition, the multimedia lesson was shown to be more effective than a non-multimedia lesson.
