Kolitsky, Michael A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2019
The geologic method of stratigraphy which studies the structure of the earth by making layers was employed with 3D laser cutting techniques to make more easily defined tactile regions in templates of cells, tissues and anatomic regions containing muscles and bones. Templates were made audio responsive by hand-drilling a small hole in a template…

Bülbül, Mustafa Sahin – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
In this century, technological and educational needs increase drastically. Out of local language, educators need to teach robotic language and use necessary technologies to design robots like with the Arduino set. Users may develop their own robots with this set. It also improves design and implementation skills. However, it is not a suitable…

Hwang, Jiwon; Taylor, Jonte C. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2016
There has been increased attention paid to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics also known as STEM. The focus on STEM has been both educational and occupational. Unfortunately, students with disabilities perform below their peers without disabilities in math and science. The authors discuss issues related to STEM and students with…

Isaacson, Mick D.; Michaels, Michelle – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2015
Ambiguity in speech is a possible barrier to the acquisition of knowledge for students who have print disabilities (such as blindness, visual impairments, and some specific learning disabilities) and rely on auditory input for learning. Chemistry appears to have considerable potential for being spoken ambiguously and may be a barrier to accessing…

Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
At the risk of opening with a cliché statement- at the heart of the most effective mentor is a burning passion. The fuel for this passion is a desire to convince, not just try to, but actually convince your mentee that you care about their success (be it in the classroom, career, or personal life). I am guilty of believing in, and living by, this…

Robinson, Vicki – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
Virtual worlds are used in many educational and business applications. At the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology (NTID/RIT), deaf college students are introduced to the virtual world of Second Life, which is a 3-D immersive, interactive environment, accessed through computer software. NTID students use…

Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
One of history's most diverse thinkers metaphorically depicted humanity's dangerous reliance on nonrenewable energy resources as an unborn chick in an egg. American philosopher, poet, scientist, and mathematician, Buckminster Fuller, described the nutrients in an egg as the temporary and extinguishable support required for the development of an…

Isaacson, M.D.; Srinivasan, S.; Lloyd, L.L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Mathematics has the potential for being spoken ambiguously. This is problematic for many students, in particular those who have disabilities that inhibit processing of printed material. This paper documents the magnitude of potential ambiguity arising from textbooks and provides a measure of the degree to which potential ambiguity is actualized…

Heater, Mary Jane; Howard, Lori A.; Linz, Ed – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Many students are challenged when tasked to complete a word problem. While they may know the procedural steps to solve an equation, translating a word problem into an appropriate equation and producing a solution may often cause students to become confused or unwilling to try. This article provides a potential solution for teachers by discussing…

Supalo, Cary A.; Dwyer, Danielle; Eberhart, Heather L.; Bunnag, Natasha; Mallouk, Thomas E. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2009
The Independent Laboratory Access for the Blind (ILAB) project has developed a suite of speech accessible tools for students who are blind or low vision to use in secondary and postsecondary science laboratory classes. The following are illustrations of experiments designed to be used by educators to introduce them to the ILAB tools, and to…

Supalo, Cary A.; Mallouk, Thomas E.; Amorosi, Christeallia; Rankel, Lillian; Wohlers, H. David; Roth, Alan; Greenberg, Andrew – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2007
A number of tools and techniques have been developed to assist students with blindness and visual impairment who are studying in secondary and post-secondary science laboratories. Commercial electronic probes and their associated software packages allow real-time viewing and collection of data using a personal computer; however, until now, these…
