Abstract

The development of information technology promotes the innovation of education. In order to meet the educational needs of special needs children, information technology elements are included in the special education curriculum. However, most people will have difficulties in learning the Chinese input method. With worries over the cognitive deficiency, sensory impairments or physical handicaps of special needs children, teachers hesitate in teaching them to learn and apply information technology. As an action research, the project aims to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of teaching the Changjei Chinese input to deaf students. Results indicate that through the structured curriculum, deaf students are able to learn the skills. The assessment confirms that the deaf students have learnt over 2000 words and their speed of the input is very satisfactory. The report supports that the deaf students are able to learn the complicated Chinese input.
