Merging Deaf Talent with 21st Century Digital Skill Sets: Scaling a solution to technological employability and literacy for deaf, hard of hearing, and deaf people with additional disabilities

ID: 3822
School: Research Center/Lab
Program: Motion and Light Lab (ML2)
Status: Ongoing
Start date: January 2018
End Date: December 2021


The Motion Light Lab will implement a "train-the-trainers" model in order to empower deaf individuals with the digital technology and app development skills necessary to create storybook apps. These storybook apps support deaf children's access to literacy. We are rolling out a nationwide curriculum using our award-winning VL2 Storybook Creator platform; this effort will to facilitate deaf participation in STEM fields and increase their experience and skills for future employability.
