The Pinterest Sign Lanuage Challenge

Over the course of the semester, my Pinterest had been filling up quickly with ASL related posts showing up on my feed. I was usually accustomed to the regular vegan recipe along with exercises for target areas, so I was getting slightly annoyed by all this extra ASL stuff showing up in my feed. This week I decided to embrace it. I incorporated my Pinterest and ASL and made a challenge for myself!

Rules:

  • I had to learn whatever popped up first in my feed
  • I didn’t get to look ahead of time
  • I learned to motions on the spot in front of a live recording that would not be edited
  • Film using Screencastify
  • Have fun

This challenge allowed me to learn stuff that would not normally sit within a weekly category, as well as signs that I would not normally be learning outside of this video. This also allowed me to break from my boring routine and try learning ASL a different way.

As mentioned above I used Screencastify, which is an amazing chrome extension that allows you to film on your laptop with both you and your screen in the same picture. Check out my video below!

I have known I wanted to be a teacher my entire life. I never had a doubt in my mind of what I wanted to be in this world. Even though I was certain of the end goal, I never stopped to wonder what the journey to get to that point would look like. This blog is it. This blog is the messy middle where I transition from student to teacher. Every thought and belief I have and learn throughout my education is posted to this blog in order to document my journey in becoming a teacher. I invite you all to join me as I strive to become more than just a teacher, but also a kind and inclusive citizen.

  1. Hey Hayley, this is such a great idea I didn’t even think of Pinterest as a tool for using ASL which is crazy because you can learn anything on Pinterest, am I right? Anyways, good thinking to change things up and to try something new. I commend you because this took a lot of courage getting behind the camera and learning on the spot something that I didn’t even get behind that often even after rehearsing it for a week or more! Great work.
