Collaborating center through the Xunta de Galicia

Objectives

The main objective of the project is to develop an online platform to interact with physical robots or in a virtual community, to implement with them specific teaching units for adults with disabilities. This objective leads to offer this group the possibility of accessing a normal activity, such as playing with robots. Based on this basis, the project aims to help promote the inclusion of people with disabilities. For this purpose, the consortium has experts in this target group.

Involving parents in teaching / learning activities to improve the parent – child bond and strengthen their relationship is one of the main purposes of the project. The fact that there is a virtual community also allows you to play in pairs. For this reason, adults still in different places could also play together.

Objectives

The main objective is to satisfy a need detected in the electronic environment. Young people interact through platforms whose parents do not know how they work and their risks and, therefore, do not have the possibility to control them.

ParentNets is an innovative project since so far, there is no other specific adult education program in this area.

The partners hope that parents have greater knowledge about their children’s Internet activities, with special emphasis on the detection and prevention of the risks that these new technologies entail for young people.
