2nd Workshop on Inclusive eLearning 2009

In this workshop we would like to go further into the question how researcher and developer for special solutions for elderly people and people with learning disabilities can benefit from each others' experiences. We will address the comparable difficulties experienced by very young learners, learners with physically and/or learning disabilities and elderly people when using ICT. Our assumption is that developing computer supported learning environments and utilities for every day life shares more common properties than the diverse target groups let expect. Considering not only technical but pedagogical and contextual aspects and intended outcomes and needs is a key for success solutions.

Topics are (but not restricted to):

  • computer enriched environments/scenarios to support everyday life management of disabled or elderly people
  • practice reports
  • study results about difficulties with and/or advantages of computers used by elderly or disabled people
  • software developed for the target groups
  • research/studies about differences and similarities observed when handicapped and elderly people are using computers
