Abstract
Not Available Technology International Incorporated of Virginia (TII) will develop an illustrated, interactive multimedia framework which will incorporate children's stories and math lessons in both English and American Sign Language (ASL) for the promotion of math skills of elementary school children who are Deaf or hearing impaired. The Phase I effort will be targeted at grades K through 6. The content which will be developed under this framework will be accessible via CD-ROM on a personal computer, over a school computer network, or across the World Wide Web. Children who are Deaf or who have hearing disabilities often find it more difficult to express themselves or understand specific concepts, especially abstract ones such as math, due to a lack of vocabulary and English proficiency. Having material accessible on computer-based multimedia and videos as well as on the World Wide Web will facilitate the promotion of the material and peak the interest of students. For children with hearing disabilities, animation, rich illustrations, and the sign language (ASL) representation math concepts will increase the acquisition and enhance the technical development of the targeted children
