I have begun to study American Sign Language and am very interested in some
of the technology that can be used to promote communication, deaf/deaf and
deaf/hearing. My question is whether your schools use video email, and if so
which service provider you use?

I would also be grateful to know what you consider to be the best
periodicals for a newcomer to the study of deaf culture. Are there any
specifically for deaf children? I read an article in The Reading Teacher,
Paula Qualls-Mitchell, "Reading Enhancement for Dear and Hard-of-hearing
Children Through Multicultural Empowerment," and feel that is raised more
questions than it answered. Qualls-Mitchell seemed to imply that many deaf
children are mainstreamed in public school classrooms? Is this predominantly
the case in any state?

Finally, if I did subscribe to a video email service, do you know of any
kids who might like to correspond a bit with me/my students (Gr. 1-5)? I am
trying to share what I learn with my students, though not yet to the extent
that I'd like due to time constraints.

Thanks in advance.
