Free Upcoming Webinar on Visual Split-Attention with Students Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

GU_CC_finalWhen a teacher presents information along with visual supports, for example, using an interpreter, writing on a black board, or giving a PowerPoint presentation, the learners have no choice but to divide their visual attention. Understanding this classroom situation and its impact on a student’s learning capability is the subject of a free webinar that will be broadcast on Wednesday, December 4, at 3 p.m. (EST).

“Spilt attention is an issue in the classroom because it overloads a student’s working memory,” said presenter Dr. Susan Mather, a professor in the Linguistics Department at Gallaudet University. “In the webinar, I will present how by incorporating some visually based learning strategies can go a long way towards eliminating traditionally low levels of academic achievements for deaf and hard of hearing students.”
