ViPi Project logoViPi “Yes I Can ICT” Symposium Event (December 4th , 2013)

Two European lifelong learning projects (the VIPI and ATLEC project) end in December, and the final Symposium presented their outcomes within a wider framework of learning, employment and independent living for YES I CAN ICTpeople with disabilities. The two projects are complementary as VIPI focuses on the development of skills in ICT for (young) adults with disabilities and ATLEC on skills and competences in ICT based Assistive Technologies. The Symposium has a twofold aim: raising awareness among gatekeepers and policy makers on the need for ICT and ICT-AT training and also providing concrete curricula, methods and tools produced in the project. Highlighting needs and demonstrating material to tackle those needs, is considered a valuable contribution to further equal opportunities and the participation of people with disabilities in learning and employment. UPDATE… The entire event is available as both videoed presentations, and slideshows here.
