EMPOWERING DISABLED PERSONS THROUGH COLLABORATIVE LEARNING

Group photoPeople with disabilities, including those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments, are hindered to participate in society and education on an equal basis with others. With one billion persons living with disabilities, 80% of those in developing nations, they cannot be ignored.

The project IDIPOWER contributes to a reorientation of the support services role in order to best meet the needs and goals of persons with disabilities, becoming as much independent as possible.

Harmonised methodologies and tools, based on best practices of support systems, will be developed. Cooperative learning approaches, involving people with disabilities, trainers and families, will be integrated to the support systems and ICT measures will be used to support efficient information, communication and cooperation in this context.
