Service-Learning for Web Technology: Educational Games for Children with Disabilities

In the spring of 2019, the KU Leuven Bachelor programme in “Engineering Technology: Electronics-ICT” at Campus De Nayer, Sint-Katelijne-Waver offered a course on Web Technology which contained a Service Learning component.

The students interacted with the non-profit WAI-NOT to develop a set of online exercises to help children with disabilities master basic computer skills (e.g., clicking, dragging, moving the mouse pointer, …).

The students evaluated their work in a school for children with disabilities.
