Research and Dissemination

As we design and develop the software prototype, we are continually gaining feedback from students, teachers, and parents. In the first phase, we collected data through focus groups, interviews, and observations. Since the projects inception, we have learned from approximately 130 students in 7 classroom environments in Ohio and Kentucky. These students have greatly influenced the design of the software.

Throughout the project, we disseminated our work through publications, the media, and conferences. To learn more about what we are doing, please check out the following:

                                       Conferences

We presented our research at 7 international conferences, 3 national conferences, and 4 regional conferences at numerous educational technology and special education conferences, such as the American Educational Research Association, the Association of Educational Communication and Technology, ED-MEDIA World conference on educational multimedia, hypermedia, and telecommunications, and the National Center for Technology Innovation conference.
