Our team is here to help teachers with sign language resources for your students and classes. We’ve pulled together a Teacher Resources page with tips to help you add content from Signing Savvy to your classes.
As we have discussed before, most teachers are struggling to get their courses online during these troubled times of the global pandemic. Fortunately, Signing Savvy has tools to help! We ran a promotion at the end of spring to help get teachers up and running with Signing Savvy and the response was overwhelming. Moving forward, we want to continue to help teachers, not only by providing amazing sign language online learning tools, but also helping them get Signing Savvy integrated into their courses and helping their students, parents, and staff also get access to Signing Savvy.
