The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of technical workshops in improving visual impaired students' computer skills, the study sample consisted of (15 male and female students enrolled in the social development centers in Amman in the first semester of the academic year (2016/2017) and between the ages (10-17 years) with a mean of (14.18) years, and a standard deviation of (79.1). the researcher chose the sample purposefully, they were randomly assigned to two experimental and control groups, the experimental group which consisted of two sections (one for males and one for females) studied using technology for improving computer skills, The control group which consisted of two sections (one for males and one for females) studied through using the traditional way. Results of the Study indicated that there were statistically significant differences at the level of significance (α=0.05) on the school note List in favor of the experimental group, and the results showed no statistically significant fundamental differences at the level of significance (α=0.05) due to the variables of the study: (gender , teaching strategy).
