NORMALIZING THE USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES IN AN OCCUPATIONAL CENTER FOR PEOPLE WITH FUNCTIONAL DISABILITIES

We want to know the added motivations of the use of ICT and the possible benefits that can be provided in sectors of the population marginalized as the people with functional diversity are. We want to know what the most appropriate ICT applications or uses may be, as well as the factors that condition their performance.

We have investigated in different workshops (Audiovisual, Radio, Social Networks, 3D Printing, Augmented reality, Electronic music) and observed the attitude and reactions from this kind of people, not different to the ones from other populations. The trust, the proximity, the often use of these resources get that they are implemented so much for the education as for the leisure, the information and the work.

Students of the UPV have participated in these activities, developing end-of-degree projects, Master's works and doctoral theses that, in a service-learning methodology, have benefited both types of groups.

The results obtained will help us to facilitate the social inclusion in the case of the people in risk of exclusion.
