Key conclusions are that both staff and students value online sessions, to supplement face-to-face sessions, mainly for their convenience, but interaction within the sessions is limited. While some students commented that the font was “new” or “different”, none of the participants reported preferring to read material presented in that font. The difference of the STEM curriculum with the other strands and tracks is the focus on advanced concepts and topics. The effectiveness of computer-based scaffolding has been demonstrated through traditional meta-analyses. In this study, the authors describe a first-grade teacher team's experiences during their second year of RTI implementation at a rural Title I school. The majority of these efforts have been concentrated on reducing the semantic gap that exists between low-level image features represented by digital machines and the profusion of high-level human perception used to perceive images.

Abstract: As higher education has increasingly embraced digital technologies, we have been too slow to acknowledge accessibility issues for students with visual disabilities. According to the U.S. Bureau of Statistics, STEM jobs are expected to grow almost twice as much as other jobs: 21.4%! These tools do not fully and adequately meet the needs of the teachers because they are long to produce, expensive, and not versatile enough to provide rapid updating of the content. Three learning modules on the topics of seasons, environmental issues and air pollution were developed to facilitate students' inquiry abilities: questioning, planning, analyzing, and modeling. There is also no certain standard method for evaluating accessibility features of an online learning system. We engaged in conversation analysis and used MAXQDA 12 software for data analysis. The approaches that are mostly used among practitioners and educators are based on accessibility guidelines or expert judgments, without direct input from actual users, resulting in a lack of user experience perspectives.

It included six middle school students, each with LD, from a Midwestern city. 0000001074 00000 n
We also present two tools created to guide authors in writing comprehensive text alternatives. In this paradigm, 2-year graduates transfer as online students into the Distance Education in MCS (DE MCS) bachelor of science program. Pasmao is an accessible multimedia platform aimed to promote the use of information technology (IT), specifically, the digital signature within Leganés, a town near Madrid, Spain. Through its integration with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), NFB EQ opened opportunities from 2013-2016 in Baltimore, Maryland, for 60 blind students (Grades 9-12) to learn about engineering. Instead, it is better to provide information about images, then generate descriptions from responses using templates. Of those who have earned a BS through the DE MCS program, 71% are women and 61% are URM. While accessing scientific content can pose unique challenges for disabled students and those who have just started learning a new language, the UVC platform has the potential to provide students with disabilities and recent immigrants the ability to pursue new and deeper learning opportunities. The study involved two groups of students trialing an interactive e-textbook and a static PDF e-textbook within the environmental unit of science class. Results showed that all research participants gained scientific knowledge. The descriptions generated through queried image description (QID) were more likely to include information on the image category, title, caption, and units. The result of the BMA contributes to an enhanced understanding of the effect of computer-based scaffolding within problem-based learning. Age, level of education, and frequency of computer usage were found to be significant predictors of the participants’ attitudes. The L2C system employs sonified feedback that provides auditory streams synchronically. Failure to provide equal access to disabled students is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. The chapter includes the following topics: senior high school, factors that influence the choice of specialization of students, theoretical framework, and conceptual framework. With the aim at disseminating such a revolutionary arena, this systematic review analyzes its nature, application, and evolution throughout a longitudinal study, where 176 approaches built since 2010 up to the third quarter of 2017 date are gathered, classified, and characterized to disclose labor traits, outcome patterns, and field tendencies. %PDF-1.4
Abstract: It has been much easier to access education in the recent digital age. Ubiquitous learning, labeled as u–learning, takes advantage of digital content, physical surroundings, mobile devices, pervasive components, and wireless communication to deliver teaching–learning experiences to users at anytime, anywhere, and anyway. The results of BMA indicated that computer-based scaffolding significantly impacted ( g = 0.385) cognitive outcomes in problem-based learning in STEM education. Atkinson, R. D. (2012). ... the sciences major strand of study is … Results of the analysis indicated several tensions that were marginalizing special education teachers, special education students, and mathematics. Several valid questionnaires and tests were applied (e.g., SRQ-A, RAVEN) in pre- and postdesign showing a good reliability. Studies are needed that are better structured more systematic and replicable attentive to progress and findings in the cognate fields of science, technology, engineering, and math education However, little is known about the academic success of students with LD in this setting. Chapter II. With the emergence of 3D printing and low-cost microcontrollers, it is now easy to design affordable interactive small-scale models (SSMs) which are adapted to the needs of special education teachers. Comparing Students With and Without Disabilities, Use of a sonification system for science learning by people who are blind, Listen to the models: Sonified learning models for people who are blind, Hands-On Math and Art Exhibition Promoting Science Attitudes and Educational Plans, Exploratory Research to Expand Opportunities in Computer Science for Students with Learning Differences, Computer Programming With Pre-K Through First-Grade Students With Intellectual Disabilities, Teaching macroeconomics to the visually impaired: New tactile methods, verbal precision, and small groups, Towards equity in mathematics education for students with severe disabilities: A case study of professional learning, The case for adopting virtual manipulatives in mathematics education for students with disabilities, Challenges in Inclusive Mathematics Education: Representations by Professionals Who Teach Mathematics to Students with Disabilities, Multimedia platform for mathematics’ interactive learning accessible to blind people. Interventions to improve the mathematics skills of students with ASD have been recommended. According to these findings, it has been clear that there are problems at web design, access to adapted technology, the usage of mobile devices, the content of e-education and the access of the technological devices. § 300.346[a][v] Abstract: This paper examines key issues involving the interaction, design and usability of a digital whiteboard interface to support Down syndrome (DS) students in their learning of addition and subtraction algorithms. As a consequence, a large group of users--i.e., people with impairments--are excluded from accessing these Web presences. In this review, criteria for group experimental and single case studies were used to determine quality (Horner et al., Exceptional Children 71:165-179, 2005 Gersten et al., Exceptional Children 71:149-164, 2005 National Technical Assistance Center on Transition Center 2015 ). These techniques are compared among themselves and with two other sonification techniques already proposed in the literature. The complexity of multimedia contents is significantly increasing in the current digital world. In the context of people with disabilities, communication channels should be equally accessible, in particular those based on innovative media such as e-Services. Therefore, explicit instruction on image-description guidelines is not sufficient to produce quality image descriptions when using novice Web workers. We interviewed the middle school math teacher throughout the deployment to learn about the challenges faced when teaching: lesson planning, execution, and review. Those who learned through the L2C models performed with higher accuracy in the posttest. Abstract: Students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are increasingly included in general education and are expected to access core content, including science. Studies focused on functional and computational skills for students with a comorbid diagnosis of intellectual disability (ID). Fair warning, though, this strand is not for the faint-hearted. The results based on General Linear Modeling and Structural Equation Path Modeling underline the motivational effects. (Google Scholar Link) Over the past 25 years, a consensus has emerged that “the United States needs to do a better job at promoting and supporting STEM education.” But, the author points out, the problem of too few students successfully completing undergraduate and graduate STEM degrees remains. All subjects involved in the process successfully completed the evaluation session, showing a high level of engagement, demonstrating, therefore, the effectiveness of the evaluation procedure. Important challenges of CBIR are discussed, e.g. startxref
The paper will consider what a remote laboratory is and how it can be developed with accessibility in mind. The C-COI analyzes data gathered through video and audio screen recording software that captures students’ computer screens as they program, and their conversations with their peers or adults. Why the current education reform strategy won’t work. With these in mind, we present lessons learned from the use of GNIE in a real-world classroom and implications for design of software to aid graphical learning for students with vision impairments. This section contains some publications that are focused on disability and accessibility and some that are more general, and may warrant further organization. 0
OpenDyslexic was compared to Arial and Times New Roman in three reading tasks: (a) letter naming, (b) word reading, and (c) nonsense word reading. Two classes of seventh graders (13-14 years old) were randomly assigned to an inquiry group (n = 24) and a baseline group (n = 27). The results of the evaluation of the experimental implementation of Pasmao reveal a new and promising way to promote e-Services among people with disabilities. This comprehensive literature review synthesized eleven studies of mathematics intervention strategies for students with ASD. A set of rules for describing mathematical formulas were proposed after consultation with mathematicians and teachers of blind people. <<3368D352C22AA748A8B1D845C3FE1DD3>]>>
Elements of the theory of expansive learning, critical mathematics education, and disability studies perspectives were used to explore the tensions and solutions that emerged from the professional learning sessions through observations and follow-up interviews. Many studies used blindfolded sighted users to draw conclusions about design principles and usability. Author: Huang, Ph, Chiu, M.

DEFINING STEM EDUCATION The acronym STEM is commonly used to reference a set of educational and occupational ﬁelds or domains related to science, but there is inconsistency in the deﬁnition of this set and debate about whether the four ﬁelds deserve special attention as a collective entity (Gonzalez & Kuenzi 2012). Moreover, the findings reinforce the crucial roles that the school and district leadership exercise in effective RTI implementation. 5 Reasons the Literature Review is Crucial to Your Paper.
