Interpretopia gets honorable mention

I feel like I have just hit a blogging milestone, I got a shout out on someone else’s site! fromourlips.blogspot.com/2007/01/interpretopia.html

Thanks to all y’all who linked on over to check out this site. These folks are writing a book about how interpreters are changing the world.

That’s how we roll here at interpretopia -- sharing the interpreter love and unity worldwide.

Been absorbed in my final project... you can check it out by clicking on the "research" link to the right.

Communicating with Deaf students: Reinforcing verbal info visually-video

Another video vignette in the same series for hearing instructors working with deaf students in their classes. A simple example of how to reinforce verbal information visually. This approach is beyond being an accommodation for an individual student and usually benefits the entire class.

Instructor: Dr. Brian Beatty (Dept. of Instructional Technologies, SFSU)
Interpreter: Lolita White, CI, CT (Staff interpreter SFSU)
Deaf student: Matt Anderson
Students: Paul Carlson, Dee Glaim, Sharif Rashedi, Lin Tran, Joseph "Pepe" Wagnon

Lighting and Camera: Ryan Hildebrandt
Produced and edited by Nicole Montagna

Produced at San Francisco State University
Special thanks to the Instructional Technologies Department and Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Services of the DPRC.

Fun facts:
This was a Deaf/Interpreter collaboration.
Two-thirds of the students in the class are Deaf.
This video was filmed in one day.
