Stand 4: ViPi

Recent surveys have demonstrated that many people with disabilities lack the basic knowledge of ICT usage, thus also putting themselves in a vulnerable place regarding employability, since many employment opportunities require knowledge of using a desktop, touchscreen and supporting software. ViPi aims to provide a complete set of basic ICT skills training support (handbook, curriculum and training content) supported by mobile and desktop educative games, as well as a supporting portal where relevant learning objects will be referred to.
