AbstractBuilding on previous collaborations, Vcom3D and TERC develop and evaluate a Mobile Signing Math Pictionary (MSMP) that provides American Sign Language and Signed English definitions with human voice narration/lip-sync technology for Apple’s iPod Touch/iPad. Deaf and hard of hearing students lag behind their hearing counterparts not only in literacy subjects, but also in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The MSMP, in addition to animated signing, features the ability to include equations, charts, and visual representations of word problems that the animated character can refer to and describe in sign. The mobile version of the dictionary provides mobility and independence that leads to opportunity-based learning in classrooms, on field trips, or while studying anytime, anywhere.
