American Sign Language (ASL)

Educators and Instructors

 

ASLdeafined strives to provide the best American Sign Language (ASL) program online. We work with numerous schools, organizations, and companies to help them with their quest to learn American Sign Language.

Our Approach:  Our approach in offering this program is to utilize the teaching skills from the Deaf community to maximize their authentic language learning, and exposure.  Their combined efforts and professionalism strives to meet the needs of every learner in our ASL community.  Video technology enables us to offer every lesson and activity in video format.  ASLdeafined maximizes every student’s learning and comprehension of the language.  The cost to access this wealth of information is just $1 per month, per student.  Teachers are FREE.

Our Structure:  ASLdeafined is divided into four distinct levels:  Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Advanced Plus.  Each of our 300 + lesson consists of twenty vocabulary words, followed with 4-5 retention and comprehension exercises.  Each activity (exercise) is scored, then automatically recorded on each individual’s progress chart.  ASLdefined.com believes students need/deserve instant feedback in their ASL classes.  Teachers now have the video ability to introduce vocabulary words from a themed lesson to each class.  Students will then be engaged in activities that will enhance their levels of retention.  Homework can be assigned to assist in reviewing and improving their retention of the day’s exercises.  Our program is dynamic, and can easily be customized by individual teachers, to better meet the needs of your classroom.

Our Outcomes:  The testimonials from schools across the United States is a testament to the incredible results of ASLdeafined.com, compared to a textbook with pictures.  Classroom activity shows learning taking place everywhere, even on days when the regular teacher is absent, and a substitute teacher is there.  Students simply use ASLdeafined.com, and the learning process is not held up due to that teacher’s absence.   Students have retained their sign language skills when advancing to level 2 in the fall.  Many continue practicing and learning throughout the summer months on their own initiative.  Being an ASL instructor on both the high school and collegiate level, I can attest to the fact that students learn 3-4 times faster, and retain the information longer, when they have learned from this video program.  Their feedback also reflects their interest and determination for learning the language.  Now, there is no more guesswork with signing, compared to pictures and drawings.  This program is solid, strong, and complete.  If you and your students wish to obtain a free trial with absolutely no obligations for 30 days, email me at [email protected]You will quickly see how technology in your classroom is the way to a more bountiful future.
