Title ICF-Train - Online Training für Soziale Kompetenzen: IKT-basiertes Team-lernen mit Hilfe des ICF
Project Number LLP-LDV-TOI-12-AT-0004
Project Type Innovationstransfer
Das Ziel dieses Projektes war es, gemeinsames Lernen nicht nur zwischen transdisziplinären Teams sondern auch mit Eltern von Kindern mit Behinderungen bzw. Risikogruppen zu ermöglichen.
Ein Web 2.0 Bewertungstool sollte hierfür die Grundlage bieten.
Als fachliche und sprachliche Basis wurde ICF-CY herangezogen, was vor allem die Qualität von frühkindlichen Hilfen/Rehabilitation sowie die Zusammenarbeit im Team forcierte.
Reason: The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF,WHO 2002) is a classification of health and disability. The ICF-CY (Children/Youth with 1400 items) represents WHO's quality frame for assessments for children. Former "EQM-PD" introduced ICF online assessment into the field of assistance for adult persons with disability (PwD); ICF-Train transfered these online tools into the work with children.
Need: Despite political will in EU28 the implementation of ICF-CY into training and practice is poorly performed, especially in complex teams, where diverse professionals work together, like in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI).
The specificity of ECI is the provision of a team support (MD, psychologist, special educator) to children with SEN (special educational needs) to prevent further disability (3-4% of children; Eurydice). OECD recognized a EU-wide problem with these vulnerable children, pointing out a lack of standards and of comparable assessment tools. Particularly children from ethnic minorities or socio-economical disadvantaged background are at risk.
The EU-Agency on Special Needs Education (www.european-agency.org) (2005/2010) recognized that EU countries are moving to scenarios where initial assessment of needs in ECI is conducted by transdisciplinary teams but also that a common language (ICF_CY), comparable quality and the usage of ICT are missing –due to a lack of accessible skill-training material and practicable tools (directly linked to practice) (Krauss 2007)
ICF-train increased the quality and use of ICT-assessment in transdisciplinary teams by web 2.0 joint learning. ICF-Train closed the gap between political will and practical implementation by transferring online assessment and training tools related to services for adult PwD (www.eqm-pd.com) into the work with children.
R1: Online team assessment using ICF-CY as a language for professionals and clients
R2: real-time online skill training tool in a community of practice (web2.0 based): Uploaded training-cases serve as mutual learning material (DE,EN,TR,FR,PT,SK) + Training resource pool
R3: Customized tool kit for individualized learning
Intangible: Increased quality of service
The consortium included the developer of eqm-pd, partner in training and EU-dissemination within a mulitgeographical perspective (AT,DE,BE,PT,TR,SK)
On the job skill web.2.0 tools increase the quality of service delivery and in-service training for 120 ECI centres (T; DE: implementing of national (BAR) recommendations related to ECI services, availability of training tools for mainstream training. PT: Supporting accessible training tools within new legal requirements. ICF-Train supported the implementation of EU policy in SK, BE, TR by an ict-based practical (skill-oriented) community of practice.
