Programme Socrates Grundtvig 2 - Action 05-ITA01-S2G01-00042-1

The project “IT&C - A GATEWAY TO FUTURE FOR DISABLED PEOPLE” aim is to improve the quality and accessibility of disabled people to education, by finding, creating and putting into value the best methods used at European level in the field of using IT&C for disabled people.
Through the European partnership will be identified, developed and produced learning materials that will improve the methods of using IT&C for disabled people and for the people taking care of them (parents, social assistants, nurses etc).
Partners will share, learn, promote and apply good and modern practices, experiences and methods.
The participating institutions will use the modern techniques of communication (e-mail, e-groups, blogs) for keeping in contact in order to develop the project activities.
The work-groups and the channels for dissemination will be open to other actors from the countries involved, organizations, institutions and authorities, who will benefit from the experience acquired.
This will also help to shaping a positive attitude of the society towards this marginalized group.
The end product will be a bilingual manual of good practices, in English and in each partner’s language, published on paper and on the Internet Website and Webblog specially created for this purpose.
