1000 Videos for the Deaf

I find pleasure working with individuals and organizations that work to help make a difference in the community. Every once in a while you will see a post highlighting groups that I get to meet.

Recently, I have been collaborating with a non-profit organization, Deaf Kids Code, and it has been fun to learn about what they are working to achieve. Deaf Kids Code is a non-profit organization whose mission is to bridge the severe economic and social gaps that exist among the deaf and hard of hearing through the cultivation of computing and technology skills. Recently, Deaf Kids Code partnered with Purdue University’s EPICS (Engineering Projects in Community Service) program, in which multidisciplinary teams of students work on real world problems with community partners to tackle issues across the globe. Deaf Kids Code and the DKC EPICS team are currently working together to translate Khan Academy JavaScript coding tutorials into American Sign Language. Khan Academy has endorsed their work and we will be able to post to their official website once they get 1000 videos.
