A Practice for Hospitalized Students with ICT and Real Object
Wednesday, June 25 3:00 PM-5:00 PM
This study aims to provide interesting and explicit lessons, which hospitalized students could participate in voluntarily with the aid of ICT devices, and which ICT devices remove the restrictions for teaching classes and in fact supplement the actual experiences of hospitalized students. Teachers in the special-needs school visit hospitalized students 2-4 times per week to give about 120-minute private class at bed-side, but it is not enough for teaching every school subject to considering the physical condition of the students because of the medical situation. So this study shows ICT effectiveness for those students through our lessons compared with and without tablet PC. Both real object and ICT help student to learn. ICT becomes shortening lesson time efficiently but it is wrong that lessons should be given only with ICT because of it. These mean the student becomes positive and enjoys learning with real object. When utilizing ICT devices, we should consider that communication between students and teachers is still important.
