My students need a Sphero Robot, Raspberry Pi kit, Makey Makey Invention Kit, and Merge Cubes for our Deaf Ed Makerspace!
My students are deaf, hard-of-hearing, and deaf-blind. My campus serves as the high school level Regional Day School Program for the Deaf in our area.
Students are bused in from surrounding school districts to receive specialized services such as deaf education teachers, an audiologist, speech pathologist, VI teacher, intervener, and interpreters.
Most of our students come from low-income households and many have limited access to language (spoken English or sign language) at home. It is imperative for our students to learn new skills in a hands-on, visual way!
My students are curious learners and thrive on kinesthetic learning opportunities.
My Deaf and hard-of-hearing students will develop basic coding skills by learning how to code using the Sphero ball, Raspberry Pi, and Makey Makeys while they visit various stations in our deaf education makerspace.
At the end of each class period, I devote the last part of class to be a makerspace time for my students to explore technology. They can use their curiosity to solve problems while also learning various ways to code different pieces of technology.
I always encourage my students to think outside of the box; I'm really excited to see what they'll come up with and how they'll code these different devices to problem solve and show off their creativity!
