The Future's Future: Implications of Emerging Technology for Special Education Program PlanningBy Hofstetter, F. T.; Journal of Special Education Technology, Vol. 16, No. 4, pp. 7-13
Publication Date: Fall 2001
Article provides a review of emerging technologies and discusses how they can be used to help special needs. For example, extensible markup language enables web designers to separate content from style so that academic materials can be interpreted and presented in a user-friendlier manner that is appropriate for students with learning disabilities. Data mining techniques also make it possible for educators to evaluate student learning patterns and make the appropriate diagnoses. The author recommends new special education program initiatives that have the potential to help students with learning disabilities to make a meaningful transition from school to work.
