For Innovations our project is based on getting the word out, making the students of our school aware of deaf/hard of hearing people and culture. Spreading awareness of something like ASL is interesting, it’s kind of a hard task to plan. I don’t really know how to go about it myself. We just have a few ideas. Here’s a few ideas to start off with simple awareness:
Idea #1: Posters throughout the school
We have the idea of making small posters with simple, basic signs and posting them around the school for students to see and read as they are passing by. Students will see them, and hopefully it’ll spark an interest and awareness for this language and community. If everyone sees the importance of learning basic communications we could create something really cool, I think.
Idea #2 Snapchat account
Making a public snapchat account, adding students, and posting public ‘stories’ each day of a new sign that students can watch is an easy way to spread awareness of ASL. Basic every day signs, available in a way that teenagers use everyday.
