Vidéo - Des vêtements adaptés aux handicapés

Vidéo - Des vêtements adaptés aux handicapés | Design for All | Scoop.it

"Ne pas ajouter une difficulté matérielle à l'épreuve du handicap, c'est ce qu'a voulu faire une habitante de Valbonne (Alpes Maritimes) avec sa machine à coudre. Elle conçoit des vêtements adaptés aux contraintes physiques des handicapés.. Elle a été récompensée pour cette belle initiative.

Muriel Dupuy est infirmière, elle a travaillé pendant 20 ans avec les enfants, certains handicapés lourds. C'est l'un d'entre eux qui lui a donné l'idée de créer une ligne de vêtements adaptés.
L'entreprise a un an et a déjà vendu plusieurs vêtements à une association de parents de Montpellier.
Muriel travaille actuellement à la création d'un combi-pantalon."

UDL Guides Personalized Learning

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guides the process to personalize learning using the UDL principles.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 28, 2013 9:16 PM

The UDL 2.0 Guidelines can assist anyone who plans lessons/units of study or develops curricula (goals, methods, materials, and assessments) to reduce barriers, as well as optimize levels of challenge and support, to meet the needs of all learners from the start. They can also help educators identify the barriers found in existing curricula. You can use the UDL Guidelines to help you determine your learners strengths, interests, and challenges and how they:

 

> prefer or need to access and process information.

> prefer to express what they know.

> like to engage with the content.

 

When learners know how they prefer or need to access information, engage with the content, and express what they know and understand, then they take responsibility for their learning.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, June 28, 2013 11:47 PM

UDL Principles guide learners to understand how they learn best. They determine how they prefer or need to access information, engage with content, and express what they know.

I have one and I must say that this truly does feel like the "ground-floor" of NUI computing... Not perfect yet, the apps will get better. Waiting on better integration with existing OS, however it is off to a great start!
