Research-Based Storybook Apps for Visual Learners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

These interactive bilingual (ASL and English) storybook apps for iPad are unique and different from any other storybook apps currently available because they were designed and developed based on research in visual learning, visual phonology, bilingualism, and Deaf children's cognitive development by National Science Foundation’s Visual Language and Visual Learning Center at Gallaudet University.
With an interplay between a real life person using American Sign Language (ASL) and eye-catching animations, these apps showcase ASL storytelling at its best, with accompanying English story text for reading along, an interactive feature that brings children from printed English words to an ASL (including fingerspelling) and spoken English glossary, as well as vivid illustrations. Research foundations, design principles of these apps will be shared. These design and principles can apply to any visual learners. Be amazed, be awed, and be amused by these apps!
