Increasingly, we are in a digital age where it is important to provide opportunities to serve students with special needs with the most up-to-date technology. We must examine how are we utilizing technology in the classroom with all types of learners but most crucially students with special needs who often benefit from a more hands-on approach that computers can provide? What are teacher best practices for students to learn today in our classrooms that utilize technology? How are we using computers in the classroom with students with exceptionalities such as learning disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism, intellectual disability, and other lower special needs?
In fact, in a field that is currently going through constant changes due to new usages of media, such as apps, programs and even blended learning, it is important to examine best practices in order to serve future students with special needs.
We look forward to receiving your submission of new research pairing technology with this population, or a review of current literature focusing toward directions.
