ABSTRACT

This study examined and analyzed various special educational applications that were developed for students with disabilities in Korea and Abroad in terms of disability types, using types, subject relation, and teaching methods. Out of 2,269 applications, 256 applications were selected through a two- phase selection procedure and analyzed applications using the frequency and the percentage. The results are as follows. Firstly, applications for students with autism were much more than other disabilities type. Secondly, in using type, applications for learning were developed much more than any other types. Thirdly, in the respect of subject relation, applications on social studies and language arts were much more than any other subjects. Fourthly, applied behavior analysis and basic cognitive training were the most frequently used teaching methods in applications for learning. Finally, with regard to costs, about 31% of the total applications were for free and about 41% of the pay-applications were priced between 1,000 and 2,000 won. The finding of this study supports the need to develop more varied tailor-made applications to reflect the requirements of various disability types.
