The Promotion of Spanish through New Information and Communication Technologies for the social integration of people with disabilities.
The importance of New Information and Communication Technologies is becoming more evident in our society today. These technologies are tackling the objectives of social and integration of people with disabilities. Along with these facts, we stress the importance of education and training as the real tools in overcoming physical and psychological inequality, thus uniting people without differing in obtaining interesting cognitive goals.
This is where Project +ñ comes in: it contributes by promoting Spanish and, at the same time, providing the necessary and supportive cooperation in the social integration of people with disabilities. An interesting implementation allows people to access jobs through appropriate professional training, to use the Spanish language and to promote it in Internet and other channels through the application of informative tools and technologies that can be learned and swiftly applied by this group.
Project +ñ is an innovative way of facilitating the insertion of people with disabilities who may find in Information Technology an opportunity to socially and/or professionally integrate, at the same time promote the Spanish language and its presence on the web as a mean of communication, not only with Spanish-speakers, but with those interested in the culture of Spanish.
