The effects of an interactive multimedia program on teachers' understanding and implementation of an instructional innovation : student initiated research, HO23B50025 by Donald D Deshler( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of an interactive multimedia program on teachers' understanding and implementation of an instructional innovation were examined. Fifty-eight preservice teachers and 10 inservice teachers participated and were randomly assigned to one of two teacher development programs. The first teacher development program, called the "Virtual Workshop," was a computer based, interactive multimedia program. The second teacher development program, called the "Actual Workshop," was a traditional, live presenter directed program. Results of the study indicate that compared to their pretest scores, the posttest scores earned by inservice and preservice teachers on the test of knowledge and understanding of the innovation significantly improved following participation in either workshop. Moreover, preservice and inservice teachers' satisfaction ratings of both workshops were favorable. Inservice teachers who participated in the workshops correctly performed a substantially greater number of the innovation's targeted behaviors after training than before training. The development cost of the Virtual Workshop was found to be nearly four times as expensive as the development cost of the Actual Workshop; however, the cost to implement the Virtual Workshop was less than the Actual Workshop. Overall, both workshops had similar, positive effects on both groups of teachers' understanding and implementation of the instructional innovation. (Contains 58 references.) (Author/CR)
Differences in transfer propensity and learning speed on balance-scale problems for students with learning disabilities and other low-achieving students by Mary T Brownell( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on Vygotsky's zone of proximal development theory was used as a foundation to investigate differences in the learning and transfer ability of 30 students with learning disabilities (ld) and 30 students with matched low achievement (la), from grades 7 and 8. The two groups were assessed on their problem-solving ability on a balance scale learning task and three transfer tasks under unassisted and assisted conditions. Analyses were conducted to determine group differences in performance on several measures of learning, transfer, and maintenance. Results indicated inconsistent performance differences between the two groups. Students with ld performed similarly to students with la on measures associated with the learning task, but generally outperformed students with la on measures associated with the transfer task. It is concluded that students with ld are more capable than students with la of maintaining and transferring their learning, suggesting that the ability to transfer learning is more closely related to general intelligence than to a specific learning disability.

Instructional practices that promote acquisition and generalization of skills by learning disabled adolescents by Donald D Deshler( Book )

5 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While most efforts in programing for learning disabled adolescents have been directed to the content of instructional offering, the authors identify procedures to promote acquisition and generalization of skills. Exemplified within a learning strategies model, the procedures outlined here stress acquisition of specific strategies through learning it in isolation and then applying it to controlled materials. The real effect of the instruction, however, is the degree to which the student can generalize the acquired strategy to the materials used in the regular classroom and to maintain the strategy over time. Specific procedures to promote generalization across settings and over time are identified and described. (Author/SB)
