  • Module 2: Working with Multimedia

    This module aims to facilitate the use of Multimedia for supporting learning of persons with ID, supported with Guides and Multimedia applications.

  • Module 3: The Easy-to-Understand approach

    This module aims to facilitate the transformation of text into forms that are easily understandable by people with limited capabilities in reading. The module introduces “Easy-to-Understand” (EtU), an approach developed within the Puzzle project as a solution to the information challenges that our learners with ID face in relation to understanding their Human Rights. EtU is an inclusive ‘co-production’ approach that upgrades the EtR method by enhancing information presentations with use of Web, multimedia and digital tools –in other words, different modes of communication and not just reading. EtU requires the active engagement of persons with ID.

  • Module 4: Examples of Human Rights materials

    This module demonstrates content development based on the EtU approach (enriched with multimedia) as examples of what a trainer/supporter can achieve through a collaborative approach with persons with ID.
