Participate in Hour of Code by selecting from different options provided by Khan Academy. Offerings include drawing with Javascript, using HTML and CSS to make webpages, and an Hour of Databases. All courses introduce beginners to coding through videos, challenges, and a final project. The teachers' guide provides clear guidelines for preparing and implementing Hour of Code activities. In addition, Khan Academy encourages participants to follow up on activities through links to their full coding curriculum.

In the Classroom

Although this site is a resource for Hour of Code, it is available at any time. Include the tutorials on classroom computers for students to use during computer center time or as an ongoing STEM activity. Encourage students to revisit lessons and try them again with their newly-found coding skills or ask them to try a different tutorial than the one used during Hour of Code. Ask students to become coding experts by sharing tips and ideas created using a screen recording tool such as Free Screen Recorder Online, reviewed here. Share the recordings on your class website for students to access from any location. Consider starting a monthly podcast designed by students to share coding tips and suggestions with the larger school community. Buzzsprout, reviewed here, offers up to two hours of free podcast uploads monthly. Hour of Code lessons are supported in many languages, including a transcript option for deaf students. Registration isn't required; however, it allows you to track progress and earn badges on the Khan Academy site.

The goal of Signed Stories is to increase the literacy of deaf children; however, it is a great resource for all children. After choosing an interactive, audio, or text story, you will see the text, hear the story and see it in sign language. Almost 100 titles are available and can be searched by topic or by browsing all titles. Some stories offer all three options others only one or two. Many stories have pause and rewind buttons, so you can replay to see signs again.

tag(s): sign language (10)

In the Classroom

Use stories on the interactive whiteboard or projector to teach story elements - pause as the story is read to allow students to retell details to the stopping point then make predictions of what will happen next. Help students understand disabilities and adaptations to disabilities through watching the stories being told in sign language. This is also a great resource for students with deaf/hearing impaired parents or students/teachers trying to learn or practice sign language. In sign language classes, consider creating your own signed story videos for children's books and share them on a tool such as TeacherTube reviewed here.
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.

NTID is the world's first and largest technological college for deaf students, marking the first effort to educate large numbers of deaf students within a college campus originally designed for hearing students. Besides the typical college curriculum, NTID also has programs that prepare students to work in fields related to deaf people. NTID is located in Rochester, NY.

Parents and teachers may also want to check this out, but it's a must-see for deaf students of any age. Offers "Deaf-World News" and a deaf quotation of the day, and has a listserv to join. There is plenty of information to keep teens busy, and a special "Deaf Kids" section for grade-schoolers. This section has artwork from deaf students, stories, a chat room, pen-pals, and more. A very impressive site!

They have many brochures concerning how to interact and communicate with these children, which are available to read online. The site also features two databases: one with bibliographical information on deaf-blindness and one with federal, state and local resources. Both educators and parents will find this information helpful.

AVI is a nonprofit international membership organization that promotes listening and speaking as a way of life for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The auditory-verbal approach helps these children learn in regular classrooms and living environments and to become independent, participating citizens in mainstream society. They offer a newsletter, information on conferences and events, and a chat room. This site is more for parents interested in this approach for their child.

This site is a launch pad for almost any question you can ask about deafness. The links are of the general information variety rather than teacher-oriented, but if you know very little about deafness, this is a fine place to start. Includes feature articles, a chat room and bulletin board, plus recommended books (including children's) and videos (that feature deaf characters, not videos about deafness). One must-visit link: signing dictionaries.

tag(s): air (107)

In the Classroom

Share this link with teachers who have a deaf student for the first time and are curious for more information. This site would also be a great research spring board into one of the many conditions that cause deafness. If students are working on a research project, refer them to the site in their quest to narrow their topic or to garner general information.

Could also be useful for teachers who need to adapt curriculum content to meet the needs of a hearing-impaired student.''''?

This site offers short quicktime movies showing ASL gestures conveying concepts and phrases. All are available alphabelically, and the clips are brief enough that they load efficiently, even with a slow connection. This is a very useful resource for those who may not have access to other sign tutoring resources.
