ML2: Development of ASL Word Play Rhymes and Patterned Texts for Young Deaf Children Motion Capture to Better Understand ASL Nursery Rhymes, their Temporal Patterns and Structure

ID: 3501
School: Research Center/Lab
Program: Motion and Light Lab (ML2)
Status: Ongoing
Start date: May 2014


This working project is to develop new and original ASL material for young deaf learners with patterned and phonological sign rhymes to create a robust learning experience. We are using motion capture to best study and identify the rhythmic temporal patterns that shows most engagement. We are interested in setting standards in nursery rhymes in ASL and to further understand the approaches in creating material for young readers, and to improve our storytelling patterns.
