Research Institution
The project builds and evaluates a universally designed, handheld/wireless educational software intervention that trains students with learning disabilities (LD) and their teachers to use a metacognitive strategy for translating mathematical word problems into visual-spatial schematic models. The intervention is based on the prototype created in Phase I. Phase I research suggested that a universally designed, research-based, handheld-based, visual-spatial metacognitive strategy technique offers promise as a cost-effective mathematics intervention for students with LD. The resulting commercial software product will improve the capacity for mainstream teachers to assist students with LD in reaching their full potential in mathematics.
