Publication Date: Spring 2002
Article discusses the Disabilities and School Discipline CD-ROM, which is a multimedia problem-based learning (PBL) program designed to teach pre-service educators about the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) discipline guidelines. The module had three key phases: (1) a narrative, which introduces the educational problem, (2) the role strands, which require educators to assume one of eight roles during an interactive simulation that requires them to conduct a functional assessment, and (3) the problem resolution phase, which provides pre-service teachers the opportunity to compare their resolution to those formulated by professionals. The implications of using multimedia PBL technology in special education teacher preparation courses are discussed.
