- The development of digital skills among persons with intellectual disabilities through a peer-to-peer education model;
- A universally valid framework for competence development of those supporting learners with intellectual disabilities in developing their digital skills;
- Implement an accessible version of an e-learning platform for persons with intellectual disabilities that is co-designed with them, along with guidelines for its use;
The main target groups include: persons with intellectual disabilities (main target) and organisations of persons with disabilities; other service providers, specifically social care & support providers working on/in cooperation with education & training settings; education & training providers; policy makers, stakeholders.
The 24-month long project has 10 partners spanning across Europe that all bring to the table various expertise to achieve the goals of this project. RTCN will soon have its own website which help you to stay informed on the developments of the project.
