Accessible web based and interactive video supported skills transfer
Start date: Jan 1, 2010,

There are several reasons, at the European level, why a consortium of 27 experts from Slovenia, Greece, Italy and Austria, with excellent knowledge and experience in the education and training of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Blind and Partially-Sighted (4 target groups), have decided to submit this proposal:• these target groups do not have equal access to (ICT-based) education and training, and applications for ICT are often user-unfriendly;• the existing teaching methods, teaching materials, and approaches are not keeping pace with the technological changes sweeping through our society and ICT often has an insufficient presence in those European education and training systems that need to adapt to these changes (progress report adopted by the European Commission in 2008);• ICT-based education and training is inaccessible for many European citizens, depending on their socio-economic backgrounds.In order to provide innovative learning through ICT, at the European level, this consortium would develop innovative ICT-based training in ceramic designs for at least 70 Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Blind and Partially Sighted learners. Moreover, this innovation would be accessible to every European citizen. Experts would initiate this innovation over 6 pilot trainings and design a Project Promotion Campaign, including dissemination of the results, at local, regional, national and European levels through the network of the European Platform for Rehabilitation. This would include all relevant European institutions concerned with educating and training of people with special needs, policy makers, and others involved, with the purpose of transferring their findings into the mainstream practice and promotion of anti-discrimination and awareness-raising activities, social inclusion, ICT-based learning for all, EU-policies, and LLP.The long-term objective of this proposal is to establish a firm foundation for the acceptance, formally or informally, of innovative ICT as one of the key ICT tools for the education and training of people with special needs.
