Fast, Danene; Wild, Tiffany – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2018
Instruction in science can be difficult for students with visual impairments due to the use of visual instruction that is often used for conceptual understanding. Pedagogical approaches to teaching science continue to evolve, with inquiry-based science instruction as a primary instructional method used in current classrooms. In teaching students…

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…

Papasalouros, Andreas; Tsolomitis, Antonis – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2017
The TeX/LaTeX typesetting system is the most wide-spread system for creating documents in Mathematics and Science. However, no reliable tool exists to this day for automatically transcribing documents from the above formats into Braille/Nemeth code. Thus, visually impaired students of related fields do not have access to the bulk of study material…

Kroes, KC; Lefler, Daniel; Schmitt, Aaron; Supalo, Cary A. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2016
The hands-on laboratory experiments are frequently what spark students' interest in science. Students who are blind or have low vision (BLV) typically do not get the same experience while participating in hands-on activities due to accessibility. Over the course of approximately nine months, common chemistry laboratory experiments were adapted and…

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…
