What if the majority of information came to you through your vision? What supports would you need if you vision wasn't as clear as it should be?
My students are deaf or hard of hearing high school students.
My students come from up to 30 miles away to receive an education with the supports of a program designed for the deaf and hard of hearing: a signing special day class teacher, American Sign Language interpreters for time in general education classes, a signing speech therapist, and a signing audiologist. We are a special education program that is integrated into a regular public school.
The camcorder, in conjunction with the LCD projector I already have, would make receiving signing easier for students who have low vision or whose eyes fatigue easily. With this equipment I will also record and review signing skills of students in my American Sign Language class as well as assess communication skills of deaf and hard of hearing students.
Students will be able to take exams "orally" and the answers can be easily reviewed and graded.
Students will be able to make videos for presentations in various general education classes as well as for Senior Projects. The camcorder will also be used to capture lectures in which vocabulary is taught or reviewed, so that students have access to this information more than once.
