COUNT ME IN TOO!
COUNT ME IN TOO! - VET for people with disabilities through cultural institutions (CMI2) is funded by the European Union within the ERASMUS PLUS Programme and runs between 01.09.2015 and 31.08.2017. The CMI2 team is developing an ultra-simple app creation tool that will enable vocational training professionals, managers, coaches etc. to create simple task-based training apps for employees and trainees with learning disabilities. The apps aim to empower workers to complete given tasks more independently. The App Generator will be accompanied by instructional videos and each app by educational training notes for the trainer.
The first prototype of the App Generator for the CMI2 project is now ready in all partners’ languages. This ultra-simple app creation tool will enable managers, supervisors, mentors and job coaches to create simple ‘task based apps’ to empower workers and trainees with learning disabilities to work more independently. The tool is available here: http://www.cmi2.eu/en-gb/app_generator/
The testing phase is being implemented in all participating countries, specifically in Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Poland, Sweden and in the United Kingdom – and feedback to improve the App Generator collected among professionals.
Currently partners are developing various Apps, and the first apps are already available:
