DICE on the Krakow’s Week of Persons with Disabilities
Week of Persons with Disabilities, “I love Krakow ” is an annual project of an integration, organized by the City of Krakow and Malopolska Marshal’s Office in cooperation with regional NGOs. On 30th of May 2014 Foundation once again had the opportunity to present it’s offer for people with disabilities, including international projects’ results.
On a specially dedicated stall we were demonstrating DICE to Cracovians to show a new online platform, which is the main product of the project, created on the model of social media. DICE is based on the achievements of the previous project Gateway and develops using online resources on assistive technologies. The new portal will be enhanced with access to social media and user generated content to create a dynamic community based on close, direct relationships within people with disabilities, coaches and teachers, and employers.
With this tool, people with disabilities will have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and get information on the latest accessible technologies. We strongly believe, that creating such a network of mutual support will reduce the problem of the digital exclusion of people with disabilities.
