“Developing the digital skills of people with disabilities and older adults for a more inclusive digital society”

Today the first ENTELIS+ workshop will be held. The aim of this workshop is to present the work being carried out by the project and showcase the preliminary research results. Participants will also be invited to take part in a practical part of the workshop to identify and share good practices and their experience on digital accessibility skills and to help identify the key elements for developing more inclusive and accessible future training and education programmes.

Questions that will be addressed in the discussion:

– What are the key success factors in fostering digital skills of people with disabilities and older adults?

– How can we prepare a more inclusive and accessible future training and education?

  • What are the main target groups to receive this type of training and what are their specific training needs?
  • What type of training programmes should be designed (Type, access, level, duration, materials etc.)?
