Service Learning Experiences in the Master's Degree in Educational Technology: E-Learning and Knowledge Management

Final Degree Project - Learning methodological strategies for children with Asperger

  • Coordination: Merce Gisbert Cervera (merce.gisbert(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Entity: Asperger Association (ASPERCAMP)
  • Summary: This proposal appeared in the first edition of the Social Projects Marketplace held in Reus. It describes an interdisciplinary project that tries to find solutions to the educational challenges facing boys and girls with Asperger.
    Participants come from the Degree in Telematic Engineering, the Degree in Psychology, and the Master's Degree in Teacher Training. The main problem faced by children with Asperger is that most of the school's activities are intended for neurotypical children. The goal of the project is to provide children with Asperger methodological strategies so that they can learn by using new technologies. The Master's Degree student designed and developed, the academic year 2014-15, a scientifically based documentation strategy to advise secondary education teachers of different TIC uses that could improve the educational process of students affected by Asperger syndrome. The leading research carried out in this field should be systematically analyzed so that a proposal can be made about how the new technologies can be used to help children with Asperger.
