When I mention that the website would be like DVTV I am referencing how Deaf Video TV is a third-party website that provides a platform for a structure that is already present (YouTube). This is the same idea -- using YouTube for uploading and hosting video content, while providing a website that organizes/categorizes educational content on YouTube and OpenCourseWare sites. This new platform would aim to provide many additional features such as tight integration with Social Media (Facebook Groups, Google+ Hangouts, etc) collaborative tools for engagement, and many other emergent properties that will surely come to the platform as innovative community members become active.
What public schools won't teach you (and even some Deaf Schools)! Deaf-centric school subjects -- no budget cuts or state-mandated learning objectives to get in the way of the free flow of knowledge. "Knowmads" you can hop around and learn anything you like in a language that is fully accessible.
I explained why there is a preference to address this kind of learning as "visual learning/education/knowledge" instead of 'Deaf learning/education/knowledge' ... I neglected to expand my thoughts on omitting "ASL" from the title. Undeniably most of the content will be in ASL, however, there's no reason why an individual using a different signed-language in another country can't join the movement and create content in a visual language other than ASL. I prefer to opt for the terms that are more inclusive. If you think the state of Deaf education in the States are awful, then let me assure you that in developing countries they are abysmal.
100% non-profit. 100% community owned/run/managed. Donations of time, knowledge, effort, and energy not of money.
The Deaf community is more that poised to become leaders in education. A lot of "Education 3.0" talks about how it relates to a "Society 3.0" with high levels of collaboration and flow of information. The collectivist nature of Deaf Culture, our unwavering focus on education, our dedication to cultivating our environment for the generation of tomorrow makes us a society ready to employ Education 3.0. Harnessing and sharing community knowledge by teaching one another has been a feature in our culture since, well, always, our Deaf Clubs were Education 3.0 way before Education 3.0 was invented. Each one of us is a change-agent with the potential to create content that acts as a spark, as a catalyst for great change.
