Design and Evaluation of Technological Support Tools to Empower Stakeholders in Digital Education (EMPOWER)

Type: International Project Project

Duration: from 2022 Oct 01 to 2025 Sep 30

Financed by: European Commission

Prime Contractor: Univeristy of Valencia (University) - Valencia, Spain

Given technological developments in other domains and lessons from the pandemic, there is a strong push to invest in technology-augmented education. However, much remains unknown; for example, what technological abilities are useful in education, how they can be deployed, what training needs arise, and what shape future policies governing this should take. EMPOWER contributes to resolving these questions by developing novel technological support for the education of children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). This use case is, in many ways challenging, and thus ideally suited to 1) make a positive impact on the educational needs of these children, and 2) highlight the potential and limitations of technology-augmented education in a way that can inform future developments generally.
