Digitale Barrierefreiheit und Inklusion: Von der Theorie in die Lehrpraxis

In many places, technology is seen as a motor for digital accessibility. But what is digital is not automatically barrier-free. There are often stumbling blocks and more frequent "blind spots". This post starts with an extended definition of inclusion which includes visible and non-visible disabilities. It is based on the principle that participation in a digital society must be possible for everyone and that disability is often constructed due to ignorance.

SpielDig – Leib und Söl

In this project, technology-supported learning games are intended to bring digitization skills closer to people with special needs. Special learning training and support offers in day-care centers are being developed for practical use. The aim of the project is to increase the chances for equal participation in society.

DIGI:Coaches

The introduction of DIGI:Coaches – these will be specially trained FAB employees – is intended to overcome digital barriers and develop target group-specific solutions. The company's DIGI:Coaches support the employees of the FAB in their daily requirements in dealing with digital media and should thus prevent the danger of digital exclusion. In doing so, the "staff members" of FAb can better support the learners in digitalization - a scale-up of the project is planned, in which also learners are trained in digital competences (work in progress)
