ASCIT - Again at my school by fostering communication through interactive technologies for long term sick children


The ASCIT project aims to develop an educational and social tool for primary-age children with long-term illnesses. The intention is to keep the children in contact with their class via ICT during their absence and thereby support their involvement in both formal and informal school life. On the formal front, for example, it will be possible to follow the lessons remotely and on the informal front, the tool aims to improve social contacts between the sick pupil and the class (classmates and teacher).

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/09/2005 - 31/08/2007.
