dc.description.abstract The use of technology has seen a significant increase in U.S. public schools. Evidence has shown more and more student success as new technologies are being integrated into the educational curriculum. The area that is experiencing growing attention with regard to technology integration is that of special education, as it has become an IEP (Individualized Education Program) requirement established by the Individuals with Disability Act (IDEA). A growing body of evidence is showing the benefits of this aid to students with special needs. Many technologies can be used for individuals with mild disabilities, such as computer-managed instruction, electronic books, and technology tools. One of the drawbacks to using technology in the classroom is that many educators are not prepared to use these resources. Fortunately, a growing number of pre-service teachers are becoming familiar with these technologies for use in their classroom. en
