Jin, Yu-Ru; Lin, Ling-Yi – Journal of Research on Technology in Education, 2022
This study aims to investigate the relationships between touchscreen tablet usage time and attention performance in preschool children. Seventy-five young children with typical development were recruited. The accuracy rate and reaction time of their attention performance improved with age. Significant differences in accuracy rates, reaction time,…

Iannacchino, Cristina; Lieberman, Lauren J.; Ball, Lindsay – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, 2022
Students with visual impairments do not have the same opportunity to see the equipment, activity, field, court, or game play as their sighted peers. Therefore, pre-teaching--the exposure to the entire upcoming unit before it starts--is warranted in order better support their inclusion in every activity with their peers at the same pace.

Wu, Chih-Fu; Wu, Hsiang-Ping; Tu, Yung-Hsiang; Yeh, I-Ting; Chang, Chin-Te – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2022
Introduction: Many tactile graphics designed for individuals with visual impairments consider single factors. According to the results of our previous study, there may be interactions among scale, representation, and complexity factors. We conducted this integrative study with these three factors. Additionally, for the representation factor, we…

Stewart, Robin; Zebehazy, Kim T.; Holbrook, M. Cay – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2022
To be effective teachers of literacy for students who read braille, we need to know what our students' strengths and needs are as all these components come together in braille literacy. Using an appropriate assessment that addresses the skill sets involved in braille literacy is critical to putting together effective intervention packages for our…

Hutchinson, Rachel S.; Eardley, Alison F. – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2020
Introduction: Audio description (AD) in museums is crucial for making them accessible for people with visual impairments. Nevertheless, there are limited museum-specific AD guidelines currently available. This research examines current varied international practitioner perspectives on museum AD, focusing on imagery, meaning, emotion and degrees of…

Andjic, Branko; Cvijeticanin, Stanko; Hayhoe, Simon; Grujicic, Rade; Steševic, Danijela – Journal of Baltic Science Education, 2019
Recently, the research about innovative approaches in the education of blind (non-visual--NV) students has intensified; however the use of dichotomous keys (DK) in their botanical education has not yet been examined. This research explored the contribution of two self-generated dichotomous keys (DK) for plant identification (a digital version--DDK…

Iturregui-Gallardo, Gonzalo; Méndez-Ulrich, Jorge Luis – International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, 2020
The "Self-Assessment Manikin" (SAM) is one of the most extensively used instruments in the situational assessment of the emotional state in experimental or clinical contexts of emotional induction. However, there is no instrument of this kind adapted for blind or visually impaired people. In this paper, we present the results of the…

Stone, Brian; Kay, Donovan; Reynolds, Antony; Brown, Deana – International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 2020
Students with blindness or visual impairment face learning barriers in the typical higher education classroom where a great deal of information is conveyed visually. Instructors can use a variety of strategies to accommodate such students and make visually presented information accessible. One common and inexpensive strategy is the use of tactile…

Kandalam, Suraj; Ferro, Tyler; Pawluk, Dianne T. V. – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2019
Introduction: This article describes the development and initial assessment of a set of tactile crayons that can produce different textured lines and areas on standard paper. Method: An assessment of the need for tactile crayons was performed through the use of surveys and focus groups from which a set of six tactile crayons was developed.…

Naples, Michele I. – Journal of Economic Education, 2017
Visually-impaired students require tailored pedagogies to ensure their instruction is as high quality as for sighted students. They follow board work during class by referring to typed class notes provided ahead of time via a Braille reader, and in-class small groups solving problems create an inclusive "esprit de corps" and promote…

Hadwen-Bennett, Alex; Sentance, Sue; Morrison, Cecily – International Journal of Computer Science Education in Schools, 2018
Programming can be challenging to learn, and for visually impaired (VI) learners, there are numerous additional barriers to the learning process. Many modern programming environments are inaccessible to VI learners, being difficult or impossible to interface with using a screen reader. A review of the literature has identified a number of…

Brittell, Megen E.; Lobben, Amy K.; Lawrence, Megan M. – Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, 2018
Introduction: Technological advances have introduced three-dimensional (3-D) printing as an option for creating tactile maps for people with visual impairments (that is, those who are blind or have low vision), diversifying the types of map products that are available. At the same time, it presents a challenge to map makers to implement designs…

Tikkun, Sean Richards – ProQuest LLC, 2018
This study investigated the cognitive factors that impact the completion of mathematics problems, specifically algebraic-reasoning, by individuals who use tactile materials (i.e., braille) compared to those who use print materials. The inquiry investigated working memory, task time, cognitive load, efficiency, and the predictive quality of…

Salamonczyk, Andrzej; Brzostek-Pawlowska, Jolanta; Mikulowski, Dariusz – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2020
One of the key abilities that every student should learn is mastering math skills. It is particularly difficult for blind students who have problems with access to information that is usually presented graphically for common pupils. One of such information in the case of mathematics is the presentation of graphs of functions and geometric shapes.…

Andic, Branko; Cvjeticanin, Stanko; Maricic, Mirjana; Steševic, Danijela – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Although very rare, the existing research on the biological education of blind people indicates that teaching content is not fully in line with the sensory perception of that content by the blind. The aim of this study is to analyse the morphological details which the blind can register in multisensory plant research and to harmonise the…
