Teaching Physics to Deaf College Students in a 3-D Virtual Lab
Robinson, Vicki
Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, v17 n1 Article 5 p41-52 2013
Virtual worlds are used in many educational and business applications. At the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology (NTID/RIT), deaf college students are introduced to the virtual world of Second Life, which is a 3-D immersive, interactive environment, accessed through computer software. NTID students use this virtual environment to practice concepts first encountered in the laboratory.
