Success Stories illustrates effective learning with multimedia, videotape, the Internet, telecommunications, do-it-yourself captioning, and more. Fifteen stories take place in classrooms from kindergarten through high school, in all types of settings, and across the curriculum. Many of the activities described promote interaction--among children, children and teachers, children and parents, and deaf and hearing students. Other stories highlight hands-on activities in which students are actively engaged in the learning process.

We've packed a lot into each one-page story. You'll find basic facts about each school, including a contact person who can answer your questions, and, when applicable, equipment lists and additional creative ideas related to the story.

Success Stories also has 23 selected resources, ranging from listservs and publications for educators to CD-ROMs and videos for students. Many of the resources were specially produced for deaf students. There are also tips on raising funds for technology.

Success Stories was written by Mardi Loeterman of WGBH and Judith E. Harkins, Ph.D. of Gallaudet University. It is the result of a qualitative research study conducted by both organizations and funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
