Description & Coverage
Description:

With the unprecedented advancements in computing power coupled with the societal movement towards inclusive settings, there is no better time than today to strive for assistive technology equity in terms of universal implementation within a transdisciplinary perspective.

The Handbook of Research on Human Cognition and Assistive Technology: Design, Accessibility and Transdisciplinary Perspectives marks a critical milestone in the history of implementation and practice of assistive technology. The intent of this book is to assist researchers, practitioners, and the users of assistive technology to augment the accessibility of assistive technology by implementing human cognition into its design and practice. Consequently, this book presents assistive technology as an intervention for people with disabilities from a transdisciplinary perspective.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Assistive Technology
  • Cognitive Load
  • Disorientation issues
  • Electronic portfolios
  • Human cognition
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Multi-Sensory Environments
  • Simulation-based instruction
  • Social orthotics
  • Text-to-speech software

Editor/Author Biographies
Soonhwa Seok has an M.A. and Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction in special education from the University of Kansas. Dr. Seok has interests in educational communication and technology with applications for teaching English as a second language and special education. Most recently, as a post-doctoral researcher, Dr. Seok has examined and developed intersensory learning models, assistive technology, and motivation and feedback for students with learning disabilities. Another research focus is assistive technology evaluation, such as functional evaluation for assistive technology, and supports intensity scales implementing assistive technology for the students with disabilities. She has served as a peer reviewer for conference proposals, presented on web accessibility, and published articles on distance education and special education technology.
Edward Meyen is a Budig professor of special education and co-director of the eLearning Design lab at the University of Kansas. His research interests are in the development of elearning tools for use by educators in K-12 and post secondary education. His current work is in developing online tools to enhance the blending of assessment with instruction that is aligned with curriculum standards K-12 Education.
Boaventura DaCosta holds a Ph.D. in instructional technology, an M.A. in instructional technology/media, instructional systems, and a B.S. in computer science from the University of Central Florida. His research is interdisciplinary, concentrated in the fields of computer science and instructional design, with a special interest in games and learning.
