First Ever ISL STEM Glossary
Category : Post Primary
Recently Dr. Elizabeth Matthews from Dublin City University School of Inclusive and Special Education coordinated an ISL Glossary project. We are honoured that our teachers Maggie Owens, Sean Herilihy and Liz McLafferty are involved in this innovative project with Dr Elizabeth Matthew and her team. On the 12th of February 2019 DCU launched the first phase of a newly developed Irish Sign Language (ISL) STEM Glossary project at the Deaf Heritage Centre in Cabra. It is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) the project aims to create the first ever open-access online glossary of maths terms in Irish Sign Language. This first phase glossary has over 200 videos of Maths Glossary in ISL. Some new signs are developed such as ‘Prime Number’, in Statistics we have Mean, Mode, Median, Range, Standard Deviation. This online resource is a very valuable tool for Deaf and Hard of Hearing learners at primary school, post-primary school and for their parents and teachers. Guests to the launch had fun at the interactive Mathematics stations which was prepared by Maggie Owens and Holy Family School for the Deaf Transition Year Students. Many thanks to Dr.Elizabeth Matthews for making this possible.
