PIRES DE CAMARGO, Eder y NARDI, Roberto. Difficulty and viability scenerio of including students with visual impairment in electromagnetism classes. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc. [online]. 2008, vol.3, n.2, pp. 35-48. ISSN 1850-6666.
This article is aimed at understanding which the most important difficulties and alternatives to include students with visual impairments in physics classes are. It presents and discusses the difficulties and viabilities of having a born blind student effectively attend electromagnetism classes. Using content analysis, this experiment identifies 4 functional classes which might correspond to difficulties and 5 which refer to the viabilities. Therefore, the importance of appropriate communicative environments, the including role of the interactivity element, as well as the need for destitution of segregation environments inside classroom, are emphasized.
