Abstract

Ways to assist students with behavioral problems is one reason cited by new teachers as one reason they would leave the profession. It is imperative that teachers be equipped with tools to help in the development of academic and behavioral abilities. Much research supports application of academic technology, but there is limited work discussing technology use for behavioral enhancement. The IDEA (2004) provides directives that state that assessments should be conducted and technology considered as a way to support learning. Children with EBD require extra support to access the social community in general education. Technology is proposed as one way to increase that access. However, empirical study to identify the most effective methods to use technology for students with deficits in behavior is limited. This study assesses ways to enhance teacher development of tools to facilitate behavioral enhancement and strategies using technology as part of pedagogy.
