Using Concept Maps for Educational Based Implementation of Assistive Technology: A Culturally Inclusive Model for Supervision in Special EducationBy Huer, Mary Blake; Journal of Special Education Technology, Vol. 20, No. 4, pp. 51-59
Publication Date: Fall 2005
Article discusses three emerging issues and problems in special education: (1) new learning environments with different teaching styles, (2) equity in assistive technology (AT) access, and (3) the inclusion of AT in special education classrooms. The use of concept maps as AT is discussed, as these are tools that allow teachers to organize and present information. A sample concept map is presented and discussed, while instructions for the successful design of these tools as pre-service and in-service AT education models are included. Implications for integrating collaborative strategies during cross-cultural AT decision making are also discussed.
