Computer technology is becoming a more important component of high school and college science classes. Computer-controlled laboratory systems allow a person to make measurements with sensors connected to computers. Experiment simulation software may be included with textbooks. For students with a physical or visual disability, combining these science technologies with computer access technology and alternative techniques may provide them with a means to actively participate in science laboratories for the first time. This session will demonstrate some of these technology combinations and provide participants with an opportunity to complete several experiments.

Dr. Robert C. Williges
Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
To improve usability of assistive technology, the user's special needs must be assessed, and the user must participate in the design process. A three-phase design approach that incorporates (a) needs assessment, (b) assistive technology design, and (c) design validation as well as a general model for selecting assistive technology will be described. An example of using this approach for visually impaired users will be provided. Implications of using this approach for designing computer-based assistive technology for mobility impaired users also will be discussed. BIOGRAPHY Return to MJ Ellis Lecture Series Home Modified:

High-tech devices have revolutionized disabled people's lives

Since the Americans with Disabilities Act became law exactly 10 years ago, the phrase ``assistive technology'' has become a common phrase and a booming business. In addition to the installation of sidewalk curb cuts and specially designed access ramps, lifts and bathrooms in public places, a wide array of electronic devices and other equipment has been designed to help those with varying degrees of disabilities lead more-enjoyable and productive lives. For example, disabled people can use wireless devices controlled by head or tongue movements or touch screens to operate power wheelchairs, run computers, use the phone, open doors and operate most everything else in the appropriately outfitted home or office. In addition, voice-recognition and text- reading systems allow the visually and physically impaired to take similar control of their environments. Ceiling-mounted tracked transport systems and lifting slings can ferry the physically disabled from bed to bath. And prosthetic devices mimic the motions of the limbs they replace. ``Technology has been a godsend,'' said Steven Tingus, public policy director of the California Foundation for Independent Living Centers in Sacramento who suffers from a rare form of muscular dystrophy and uses an array of devices including power wheelchair, ventilator and voice-recognition software. ``It has provided those with disabilities more independence at home and work without relying on personal attendants.''

    Telelearning Project
    Another initiative funded through the Department of Education's Statewide Distance Learning Network grant has been the Telelearning Project at the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts in Natchitoches. Three years ago the Louisiana Department of Education determined that there was a significant gap in course offerings for college preparation and scholarship qualification, with a total of 140 Louisiana schools unable to offer appropriate curricula. A different, more cost effective technology was necessary - one that could reach into every Louisiana school and allow the constant student-teacher interaction necessary to prepare students for the competitive world of higher education. This state-wide commitment to quality education would prove unique in the United States, providing free courses to all Louisiana schools with telephone access. In 1985 a pilot project was initiated at the Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts in Natchitoches to provide college preparation classes to four high schools across the state. Interactive telecommunications software called Optel Telewriter III and Modem Voice Too, which uses a combination of computers, electronic tablets and telephones, were chosen for the project. Since the School's mission coincided with the state's needs, Dr. Fritz McCameron, Dean of Continuing Education at

    Louisiana Systemic Initiatives Program
    In the search for the best possible education for its children, Louisiana applied for and was one of ten states (and thirty applicants) awarded a National Science Foundation grant during its initial phase in 1991. From this funding emerged the Louisiana Systematic Initiatives Program. LaSIP analyzes the fundamentals of teaching mathematics and science in K-12 Louisiana schools within the context of a technology- and information-driven economy. Every facet of delivering the best possible education in mathematics and science to Louisiana students is coming under scrutiny. It is expected that such analyses and subsequent implementation will yield markedly improved student performance. Specifically, LaSIP's five-year mission is to focus on eight areas that impact effective teaching: educational technology, curriculum development, teacher certification, business partnerships, in-service training, pre-service training, information dissemination, and assessment and evaluation. Each area is a separate initiative staffed by eminent Louisiana educational experts. One of the primary tasks necessary to fulfill LaSIP's mandate of systemic reform in the areas of mathematics and science has been to establish new lines of communication. This required numerous gatherings and a lot of negotiation, resulting in a systemic transformation that can only improve communication in other arenas. To undergo such a transition, entities that had not traditionally worked together have joined to share information, make alliances and promote change, creating the potential to spawn additional collaborative efforts throughout the system. Colleges of Education, for example, are now collaborating to provide a consistent and effective education for the future teachers of Louisiana children.
