diversamente coding is an Erasmus+ project to develop a training course enabling people with disabilities to learn digital skills + programming competences
Our target group is people aged between 18-55 who are deaf or hard of hearing. Why have we chosen this target group? Deaf or hard of hearing persons have additional skills in communication, perception and visualisation. They are used to using alternative and creative means to communicate and interact with hearing people. The project will build on this valuable skill set.
diversamente coding will enable the target group to augment their real-world skills, training them to become producers of digital culture. In fact, the project will simply apply the skills the target group already possesses. Inclusive teamwork will be a vital element, encouraging great social interaction and building intercultural bridges.
A transnational survey on the digital competencies and skills of our target group will be carried out. The findings provide an analysis of training needs. These will be used to develop a training methodology and training content. Using a blended learning format, training content will be incorporated into an e-learning platform. Finally, training will be piloted by selected participants.
