AbstractThis project develops software for hand held devices for use in elementary and secondarygrades. During Phase I of this project, Vcom3D developed and tested a prototype Mobile LanguageReference for students in the middle grades that included American Sign Language and Signed Englishdefinitions selected from the Signing Science Dictionary, developed by TERC and Vcom3D, aswell as explanations of multi-sense words and English idioms. Initial testing of the Mobile LanguageReference indicated a high level of user acceptance and provided evidence that the system can improvelearning outcomes. For Phase II, Vcom3D creates and evaluates a mobile version of the SigningScience Dictionary with at least 1,300 scientific terms. Like the original dictionary, this mobile versiontargets students in the middle grades.
