Summary

A federally sponsored project explored educational practices, originating in diverse communities, in which teachers used educational technology in innovative ways to meet the needs of children with disabilities. This booklet describes projects at 11 sites around the United States. It presents a model for technology integration, emphasizes the need for creating a climate for change and a clearly defined mission, examines ways to find resources, notes the need in some districts for a dedicated position to deliver teacher training, and discusses what technology means to students. An appendix describes the conceptual model of the processes in technology innovation and integration. The booklet concludes with paragraph-length descriptions of the 11 programs and a list of 22 suggested readings. (JDD)
