Advances in Special Education Technology is designed to focus international attention on applications of technology for individuals with disabilities.
Contributors will provide chapters synthesizing the research evidence on specific types of technology interventions that improve access, engagement, and learning outcomes of diverse learners. The scope of contributions will cover sub-fields known as assertive technology, instructional design, instructional technology, online learning, personalized learning, and universal design for learning and will encompass both formal (i.e., school) and informal learning settings (i.e., self-directed, museums) across the lifespan (i.e., preschool – adult).
Readers will appreciate the specific attention authors devote to summarizing and evaluating the quality of the extant research knowledge base for each topic and recommendations for policy, new product development, practice, and future research.
