Our colleague Maja took part in an exchange within the DigiTales project, hosted by Caprifolens Voltigeklubb in Sweden. She attended the exchange together with other Slovenian volunteers, in cooperation with Zavod za mladino in šport Trbovlje.
𝐃𝐢𝐠𝐢𝐓𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐬 aims to use digital tools to increase inclusivity and equality for people with and without functional variations.
Since STEP is part of the Activate project, which targets adults with disabilities, by training them to enhance their digital skills and competences, we took the opportunity to test the Activate toolkit in practice.
The aim of this Toolkit is to give professionals tools so they can raise awareness among the people they work with (namely, people with functional diversity) and show them the opportunities that digital and online tools can offer to be active in their community.
“It has been very invaluable for me to try out the material in practice, in which I have helped to create. I think pilot testing is an important part of developing material, because it’s only in practice that you see what works well and what doesn’t. We were able to adapt the activities in the toolkit to the specific needs of each individual and received very positive feedback from the participant. I see a great opportunity to continue to use some of the activities, both in working with the target group and more broadly.” says Maja.
In addition to the workshops, there was also time for fun activities. The exchange included participants from Malta, Italy, Slovenia and Sweden, who taught each other how to cook local specialties. Maja and the girls showed them how to prepare the traditional Slovenian dish štruklji.
We would like to thank Caprifolens Voltigeklubb for the hospitality!
