Description

Authorities from the fields of education and computers explore the vital issues and concerns related to effectively using available computer technologies in the special education classroom. They thoroughly examine the potential benefits of technology in addressing the needs of the disabled, the limits in the application of technology to the lives of the disabled, and the risks of a person with disabilities becoming too dependent on technology. Timely and practical information is offered for effectively applying available technologies, advocating new technologies, and conducting needed research.
