Website of the Day: Dictionary of Sign

Dictionary of Sign is a new user created online dictionary of sign language. Currently it has American Sign Language, British Sing Language and Australian Sign Language. The concept is that users around the world fire up their digital video cameras and submit clips of various vocabulary. Already the ASL collection is impressive. I should also mention that it is entirely free.

This brings to mind the photo albums I used to make of my students' adapted signs so that new caregivers would know what they meant. Perhaps we should all making digital pictures or videos of our students' signs and making them into interactive albums. We could even use one of the free online programs like PhotoShow , Jing or Voice Thread.
