Australia: :Deer Story"

There is a lot of apps out there to encourage Deaf children to read, so today let's go down under to Australia to see theirs, they got a cool gadget that has an animated "Deer Story" in both English and Australia Sign Language (Auslan). Tablets are substitute bedtime stories if their parents not fluent in signing, not an acceptable excuse, mind you. Anyway, it's more fun learning reading, signing, spelling, grammar stuff like nouns and verbs, anywhere outside the traditional classrooms. As for myself, I visited Strafford School for the Deaf in Brisbane during Expo 88, it takes awhile to get used to driving on the other side and eating beets with your meals.
