As a teacher educator we discussed and implement one program for Science subject for 8th standard at inclusive school.
Objectives of this study were to know technology is useful for inclusive education or not.
1] Program: Software developed by researcher using CONCEPT ATTAINMENT MODEL.
2] Method: Experiment method was used
3] Sample: 20 students (15 normal and 5 slow learner, heterogeneous sample.)
4.1] Using of concept attainment model software , inclusive schools 8th standard students concept attainment is increases.
4.2] Mean of scores of pre-test and Mean of scores of post-test is not significant.
5.1] Data collection tool: concept attainment test-researcher made.
5.2] Statistical tool: t-test.
Conclusion: Using of concept attainment model software, inclusive schools 8th standard students concept attainment was increased.
1] Technology is useful for inclusive education
2] Technology is best for normal as well as inclusive schools.
