The students of the vocational school called "Be-Max" and the Okayama School for the Deaf, both in Okayama-shi, Okayama Prefecture in western Japan, are working on the development of teaching materials together.

In order to support Deaf children to learn Japanese language, development  of the teaching materials on a tablet computer has started.

It is the new measure in Japan that vocational school students advance in the classroom.

On September 25, they observed the situation of Deaf children in the classroom in order to use reference of teaching-materials work.

Then, the group concerned discussed and decided what to do with the contents of teaching materials. The trial version is made based on the discussion and improved repeatedly while used in the school, aiming at the completion in January, next year.
