Abstract

CAMARGO, Eder Pires de  and  NARDI, Roberto. ADEQUATE AND INADEQUATE COMMUNICATIONAL CONTEXT FOR THE INCLUSION OF VISUALLY-IMPAIRED STUDENTS IN MECHANIC CLASSES. Ens. Pesqui. Educ. Ciênc. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.2, pp.27-48. ISSN 1415-2150.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1983-21172010120203.

This article is inserted in a study aimed at the identification of the main barriers for the inclusion of visually-impaired students in Physics classes. It focuses on the understanding of the communication context which facilitates or hardens the effective participation of students with visual impairment in Mechanics activities. To do so, the research defines, from empirical - sensory and semantic structures, the language to be applied in the activities, as well as, the moment and the speech pattern in which the languages have been used. As a result, it identifies the rela tion between the uses of the interdependent audio-visual empirical lan guage structure in the non-interactive episodes of authority; the decrease in the use of this structure in interactive episodes; the creation of educa tional segregation environments within the classroom and the frequent use of the interdependent tactile-hearing empirical language structure in such environments.

Keywords : Mechanics teaching; visual impairment; communicational context.
