As part of its activities funded by the U. S. DOE as a PT3 Implementation Grant, Project InSight, led by a consortium at the University of West Georgia, has three objectives to promote more visual communication of ideas and skill training among preservice students and faculty. These objectives include: (1) expanding a video-based school-to-university network link among six partner school districts and the university; (2) developing a series of video demos illustrating effective instructional uses of adaptive/assistive technologies; and (3) developing virtual reality and 3D environment examples to illustrate diagnostic applications and instructional uses of these emerging technologies in meeting special needs of students with disabilities. This presentation will describe the Year 2000-2001 activities and progress on accomplishing these objectives, and demonstrate the products developed to date for each.
