ROBOTICS4DEAF GOOD PRACTICE
The ROBOTICS4DEAF project introduces students with deafness or hearing impairments to coding. While coding integrates all STEM fields (mechanical, electrical, engineering, computer science, technology, maths and science) it also promotes employability skills such as problem solving, group work, leadership, creativity and initiative.
At present time there is a high demand for digital skills which are essential in today’s job market and society. Therefore, digital inclusion for people with disabilities is a perquisite to ensure social inclusion and their integration into society.
The main objective of ROBOTICS4DEAF is to ensure access and participation of students with deafness or hearing impairments through the design and development of a Training Package which promotes coding/robotics skills.
School students as well as partner countries will benefit from the implementation of the Project at a national and regional level by developing such an innovative and comprehensive programme which introduces coding to students with hearing impairments.
