DigiAcademy app for people with intellectual disabilities

In Assistive Technology, Further Education & Training, News by DB_Admin

A new app co-created by people with intellectual disabilities offers basic information technology skills training for people with intellectual disabilities.

The DigiAcademy app has been developed as part of a European project Digi-ID (funded by EIT Health) to address the challenges of digital inclusion and the low usage of digital technologies among people with intellectual disabilities.

The app gives step-by-step instructions on how to set up a Gmail or Facebook account, how to join or set up a Zoom meeting and how to use WhatsApp.
