How can we encourage better communication in the classroom? In a semester long project, my partner Erin Regean and myself tackled this challenging topic. We decided to create simple yet essential gestures based off of American Sign Language (ASL) and cultural semiotics. We made gifs and a prototype website to inspire teachers and their students to select which gestures to use in their classrooms. The teachers and students then received a poster of the gestures to print at various sizes.
