IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Before their arrival to the training, participants will be advised to be prepared as follows:
- Prepare a short (~5 min.) introduction of themselves and of their organization / institution, preferably on MS Powerpoint or Libre Office tools
- Additional suggested literature will be given to participants at least 4 weeks before the training. This will also include the handouts of the lectures to be given in the theoretical part of the course.
- Participants will also receive detailed information about traveling, accommodation and training agenda.
The objectives of the training course are summarised in the following:
- To offer an inclusive approach to teaching, learning and assessment of (accessible) basic ICT skills, aiming at inclusive education (people with disabilities within regular education) and have this inclusive approach also embedded in daily teaching practices
- To help trainees understand the basic ICT challenges but also competences related to disabilities
- To help trainees understand and implement the teaching of basic ICT skills to people with disabilities and how to accommodate for them
- To help trainees understand the cultural and social differences linked to people with disabilities coming from different backgrounds (e.g. migrants, refugees, ethnic communities, people from outside Europe or intra-EU mobility)
- To help trainees experience, through visits to local VET centers, how local organizations for people with disabilities, as well as disabled individuals themselves, address the issues of acquiring basic ICT skills and how this can consequently improve their employability potential.
- To help trainees acquire hands-on experience by role-playing in implementing accessible teaching practices
The following methodology is foreseen, aiming at the full success of the training:
- A two-days theoretical part is foreseen, followed by a one-day acquiring practical experience and ending with a two-days seminar-like training
- All lectures will be given using on-screen presentations through projectors/beamers. Handouts will be distributed to all trainees well in advance. Where applicable, mobile training will also be illustrated using Android smartphones and tablets.
- The trainers will use pre-defined and localised case studies in order to support their teaching and increase the transfer-ability and potential adoption of the knowledge.
- All theoretical, as well as, the practical and seminar-like parts, will be supported by enough individual and group exercises that will increase motivation and adoption of knowledge.
- In general, the course will be as interactive as possible, allowing and stimulating discussions among the participants, for sharing experiences and individual work.
- Especially in the seminar-like part, specific exercises and role –playing will be used so as participants will be active and understand the content of the course better.
- Throughout the course, the trainers will have at their disposal and actively make use of a dedicated online training platform
- All parts of the training will be followed by an evaluation session of the trainer and the training content, with pre-distributed evaluation questionnaires.
After the end of the training course, participants are expected to have gained a high level understanding of the course content and how to further implement and advance the taught practices. The organizers will support them in the follow-up period with the following means:
- Contact details of participants will be collected (upon their consent) during the training days.
- A specific workspace will be created on the online collaboration platform hosted by the organizer, which will be dedicated to the communication and exchange of information, good practices, ideas, new developments, etc, among the participants. The community will be enlarged with new members after the end of each training session. The workspace will offer collaborative functionality such as, personal messages, group messages, collaborative document editing, blogging, networking, etc. The trainers will be also members of the same collaboration workspace, to provide consultancy and advice to all participants.
- In addition to the dedicated collaboration workspace, specific articles and discussions will be shared through a dedicated community platform
- Moreover, the dedicated online training platform that will be used before and during the course, will remain accessible by all participants and facilitate the follow-up training activities.
- In addition, the participants will be encouraged to participate in the ViPi platform/network (to be delivered by the project www.vipi-project.eu), in order to keep themselves up to date and benefit the most.
