The online training, which was developed as part of the project and piloted by educational professionals in autumn 2020, has now been evaluated. The feedback from the professionals is very valuable and will be used to optimise and finalise the digital learning offer.
At the end of last year, the project consortium was busy implementing so-called co-design workshops together with its partner organisations. The aim is to jointly develop strategies for action in the area of tension between "digitalisation and people with mild intellectual disabilities".
On the occasion of the International Day for People with Disabilities, the project consortium of AMEDY hosted an International Conference on the topic of “Active Media Education for Youngsters with an Intellectual Disability”, which addresses the right to inclusion in online social life for people with intellectual disabilities.
At the second transnational partner meeting in Berlin, the main focus was on the development of the blended learning training for educational professionals. But first plans were also made for a big multiplier event in December.
The online survey on the needs of educational professionals and their target group, young people with intellectual disabilities, regarding the use and handling of digital media has produced exciting results.
In order to find out about the needs of pedagogical staff working with children and young people with mild intellectual disabilities - especially with regard to the use of digital media - the AMEDY project consortium has created an online questionnaire.
