Abstract

This project develops and evaluates a Mobile Signing Earth Science Dictionary that provides animated American Sign Language and Signed English definitions for Apple’s newest touch tablet, iPad, and the existing and known technology of the iPod Touch. Using the mobile dictionary, Deaf and hard-of-hearing users are able to study a full range of curriculum-based Earth Science subjects in their native language. The mobile dictionary provides mobility and independence that leads to opportunity-based learning in classrooms, on field trips, or while studying.
