Wan-Ju Chen, Hong-Min Lin, and Shu-Fen Nien
Abstract—In order to improve the learning math capability among learning with disabilities in a special education class at a vocational school, the researchers tried to understand the learning predicament of special education students and tried to apply the Concept Map approach of e-learning to a math class. Also the researchers sought to explore the predicament of action process, solution methods, professional growth and the consequences. The research adopted the execution and observation of action research, interviews of 8 research participants and collected qualitative and quantitative data, evaluated the effect of action research and revised the action research. The results of the findings of this study were first, providing assistance to students by applying the Concept Map approach of teaching material; second, effective learning and positive feedback due to the Concept Map approach of e-learning; third, the use of blended (mixed) e-learning improves apprehension; and, finally, the Concept Map approach of e-learning can be employed on after-class review and remedial work. Based on these findings, the researchers provided concrete suggestions for teaching practices in the future.

Index Terms—Action research, concept map approach, disability, e-learning, special educational program of vocational school.
