23rd Sept. 15: MAPPING was nominated and is now shortlisted as one of the innovative practices, supporting a world with zero barriers. Worldwide, the Zero Project finds and shares models that improve the daily lives and legal rights of all persons with disabilities. The focus of 2015-2016 is twofold, namely Inclusive Education and/or ICT.
In this context, MAPPING has been nominated for the individualized learning approach.
The pedagogical approach with its appreciative and resource-oriented focus naturally also supports students with special needs. The term “special needs” covers a variety of needs, such as difficulties in reading, writing and/or mathematics, physical disabilities, mental diagnoses, socially or personally vulnerable backgrounds and needs regarding immigration.
MAPPING´s ICT-based tools, logistics and learning environments play a crucial role in supporting VET teachers and managers in this ambitious task.
