Awareness event goes digital

ANGUS schools will find it easier to participate in an annual fund-raiser for a national deaf healthcare charity after it announced that the event is getting a digital makeover.

Teachers and pupils involved in SignHealth’s sign2sing Guinness World RecordTM breaking attempt next February (2013) will have access to digital resources developed by the charity in partnership with Digital Giving.

Steve Powell, chief executive at SignHealth, the healthcare charity for Deaf people, said: “The digital resource pack will be available to all schools that register for sign2sing, which is the attempt for the most people signing and singing at the same time, and will include a free whiteboard app.

“Sign2sing is all about communication and the whiteboard app will make it easy for teachers to teach the signs and song in an engaging way.

“We believe the move to go digital will make event participation even more accessible and are hoping it will mean lots more Angus schools will take part in the event next February.”
