The project's topics revolve around technology and innovation, encompassing both in its core focus.
The target group comprises children who are both multiply disabled and visually impaired, with a developmental age ranging from 0 to 4 years old.
"iExpress Myself II" utilizes a versatile methodology that combines formal, non-formal, and informal learning, emphasizing learner responsibility. Inclusion is a core principle, promoting active participation and cooperation to create a collaborative learning environment that empowers learners and cultivates real-world collaborative skills.
The project's true innovation lies in its inclusive approach to execution, where software is specially developed to cater to every child's needs, aiding them in their societal integration. This innovative aspect becomes evident in the positive impact observed on a particular group of vulnerable students, even though quantifying the project's daily impact on primary schools remains challenging.
Led by a passionate team of specialized teachers for children with special needs, the 'iExpress Myself II' software initiative was a clear vision from the start. Teachers have been pivotal in driving the project's goals and outcomes, while a strong international collaboration with parents, students, and researchers has added depth and detail to this endeavour.
