ABSTRACT

[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to identify the current status of braille education in Korea and to investigate ways to improve the quality of domestic braille education by analyzing International research trends in braille education. [Method] A total of 46 braille education studies published from 2013 to 2022 were analyzed using the following criteria: publication and year, country/ first author country affiliation, research participants, research methods, and contents analysis. [Results] Results are summarized as follows. First, the most published is JVIB(Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness)(14, 37.0%), and BJVI(British Journal of Visual Impairment) is the second(9, 19.6%), with a total of 23(50.0%) published in two journals. Second, the country with the most studies is the United States(17, 37.0%). Third, in terms of research participants, the visually impaired were the most(22, 51.2%), followed by the visually impaired and sighted(14, 32.6%). Fourth, as for the research methods, experimental studies accounted for more than half of the total(25, 54.3%). Lastly, the contents are classified into four categories: ‘Physical Characteristics of Braille', ‘Ways to Improve the Quality of Braille Education', ‘Teaching and learning Materials', and ‘Instructional Considerations'. [Conclusion] Based on these results, the implications for improving the quality of braille education in Korea were discussed.
