DDMATH: New Approaches for Teaching Mathematics to Blind and Visually Impaired Students

Abstract

This presentation is about DDMATH (https://ddmath.eu), a project funded by ERASMUS+ that brings together partners from 4 European Countries (Italy, Germany, Poland and France) under the coordination of the Association Paccini in Italy. The project targets blind and visually impaired students as well as their teachers with the aim to facilitate their learning of mathematics. Studying mathematics has always been a great challenge for blind students and consequently, it has affected their performance, motivation to study, and ultimately access to scientific degrees. DDMATH investigates current solutions and suggests new didactic models to support concepts of Integrated Digital Education (IDE) and real inclusion of visually impaired and blind students, extending these solutions even to students with other disabilities like dyskalkulie in education. The necessity of computer-aided solutions has been especially emphasised during the pandemic the last two years. DDMATH creates adequate resources, developing a new didactic model for IDE, based on information technologies and experiments with new solutions by involving teachers, students and families in real school environments.
