Problem Statement

Persons with PwDs face many barriers to learning and challenges in life, mostly due to psychological and emotional issues and not having formal education and career paths.

PwDs' cognitive and emotional well-being are affected, sometimes making them unprepared for a better future. In addition, field trips, overseas expeditions and educational tours for PwDs are often constrained by logistics. Therefore, providing experential learning opportunities in a digital environment will help them build self-confidence and enhance their well-being.

Solution

To provide experential learning opportunities for PwDs in a digital environment that is safe, calming and motivational.

Using projection techniques onto walls and floor, controlled via software, PwDs are immersed in environments where they interact with the projections. The system allows schools without programming skills, to easily build contents (scenes, questions etc) and touch points that reveal information, answers, etc. The immersive interactive technology provides accessibility to as close to a first-person experience as possible, in safe environments that is calming yet stimulating for PwDs to learn. This will improve their cognitive, psychological and emotional wellbeing, and prepare them for a better future.

SPED Schools will also be equipped with skills that would enable them to build their internal capability for sustainable cost-effective provision of effective programmes for their beneficiaries’ ongoing learning needs and experiences.

Outcomes

Digital Dream will help level up PwDs opportunities, bring changes to their moods, concentration and behaviour through empowered experiential learning. This would enable them to improve their cognitive, emotional well-being and gain self-confidence.
