The ERASMUS project
The second cross-border meeting of the partners taking part in the LET IT BE project financed by the European Union under the Erasmus+ programme are meeting on 1-3 April at the headquarters of the “Bonifraterska Fundacja Dobroczynna” of the Polish Province in Konary (Kraków).
The meeting is attended by some 20 co-workers of the Order and the Sisters Hospitallers from seven European countries (Spain, Austria, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Ireland and Belgium). Their deliberations each day are taking place in a very cordial and constructive climate, considering that the partners have already been working for several years in the wake of the earlier European project.
Through the LET IT BE project, the consortium led by the Juan Ciudad Foundation in Madrid is creating digital teaching programmes to assist people with disabilities to learn using the new technologies. In Kraków, the participants are working on illustrating the operation of a computer programme that the partners can use to create serious games (digital educational games) to enhance the ability of people with intellectual disabilities to resolve problem situations. The focus of attention is the desire to create an effective and enjoyable experience for the users, using virtual simulations of the real world (at school, at work and in social situations) .
The project was originally promoted by the Brussels Hospitality Europe Office, and will be financed with over €275,000 in 2019 and 2020.
