This is a 2 year (2021-2023) Erasmus + project including organisations from France (Interactive 4D), Austria (Austrian Association of Inclusive Society-AIS), Italy (Euro-Net), Greece (Alzheimer Hellas), Cyprus (Synthesis Center for Research and Education) and Turkey (Avrasya Yenilikçi Toplum Derneği). The Game4CoSkills project focuses on the creation and implementation of innovative mobile games and teaching methodologies for adults with intellectual disabilities in order to improve cognitive skills and concept teaching. The project is composed of four distinct phases: R1 – Cognitive Skills Development and Conceptual Teaching Scenarios, R2 – Mobile Game for Cognitive Skills Development and Concept Teaching, R3 – Trainers’ Toolkit, and R4 – Policy Recommendation Report.
The anticipated outcomes of the project include increased knowledge and capacity building for trainers working with adults with intellectual disabilities, improved cognitive skills and concept learning in adults with intellectual disabilities, and increased awareness of innovative mobile games as supplementary learning tools. The project’s outcomes will be transferable and applicable to a variety of European target groups, such as seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Using innovative mobile games and teaching methodologies, the Game4CoSkills project aims to contribute to the continuous education and social integration of adults with minor intellectual disabilities.
