Accessing Technologies in Inclusive Classrooms

Date & Time
Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 10:20 AM PDT  
Platinum 2  

As the educational environment is moving more towards a technology-rich system, students with visual impairments (VI) educated in general education classrooms must be guaranteed equitable access to content curricula. The purpose of this session is for the audience to understand the experiences of middle school students with VI when accessing and using technologies in general education classrooms. The session will describe the findings of a qualitative case study in which three middle school students with VI were observed in general education settings for two school days. In addition to the students, general education teachers and teachers of students with VI (TVI) also participated in the study to understand how best they support access to technologies for students with VI in their classrooms. The learning model that guided the study was Universal Design for Learning. Data were collected through multiple instruments: observations, interviews, and educational documents. Findings of both within-case and cross-case analyses of the study will be discussed in the session.
