capturing innovative practices in the use of assistive technology

About the project

Assistive Technology at Work in Europe will explore how assistive technology is promoting greater social inclusion for learners and trainees with disabilities by capturing innovative practices in the use of high and low technology across the project partnership. Case studies, training, advice and guidance will be shared to support educators, trainers, learning support staff and employers to be able to assess and deploy the right technology solutions enabling learners with disabilities enhanced access to training and qualifications. The aim of this project is to professionally develop teachers, support staff and mentors in the use and application of assistive technology in order to make learners more autonomous in their learning, living and work.
