This is the first instance of a school course translated into sign language.
Guzyal Baybekova, graduate student of the Institute of Physics, was commended for her project at a recent innovation contest for the young people of Tatarstan.
With Professor Anatoly Mokshin’s (Department of Computational Physics) guidance, she is on the way to create a web portal for physics teaching to the hearing-impaired.
The inventive student comments, “Currently, hearing-impaired children are only given text information, of which only 20 percent is adequately memorized. I suggest transferring the whole school program to sign language. So far, there have been no such physics lessons. All the content will be available at our portal. The lessons will be equally useful for pupils and their teachers.”
This innovative approach is expected to be utilized for other subjects of the school curriculum as well.
