Final European event on European diversity design for inclusive and personalised education – 4 June 2021

We kindly invite you to our “Final European event on European diversity design for inclusive and personalised education”, organised in the context of the Erasmus+ funded project Euroddip_e (European Diversity design for Inclusive Education) which will take place virtually on 4 June 2021.

The project provides educational professionals with the required knowledge, tools and devices to assess the individual needs of each student and personalise the educational technological resources using ICT (allowing students learning through adapted interface, software, buttons, etc). As such, the project will provide children with preserved intelligence and physical disabilities (upper limb) a device and/or a technological application that is easy to use, affordable and with fast response, that provides autonomy in the accomplishment of their academic works, therefore, leading to greater school/educational success, self-esteem, and motivation of achievement, promoting their quality of life and reducing the burden on their families.

The agenda is as following:
