I worked on this project with the aDeNu research group at UNED (SPAIN) as part of a Spanish government funded project. The project explores the inclusion of digital technology in the training of intellectually disabled people (aged 18-30) for administrative jobs. For this project we collaborated with staff and students from the Prodis Foundation

My tasks within the project
  • Context analysis
  • User’s requirement specifications
  • Information architecture
  • Evaluation with users

The project was funded by the Plan Avanza programme of the Spanish government. Included 4 sub-projects of different Social Spaces for Innovation (e-health, professional training, basic daily life activities, e-bureaucracy) all aiming to improve the independent living for potentially disadvantaged groups, like elderly people and people with both strong or mild intellectual disabilities, with the use of technology. I worked with the aDeNu research group at different stages of the 4 sub-projects with public and private partners around Spain.

My tasks within the project
  • Context analysis
  • Information architecture
  • Wireframe
  • Evaluation studies

Within the ‘Plan Avanza’ Spanish funding programme, this project developed an accessible social network for users with mild intellectual disabilities. I coordinated the team at aDeNu research group, working in this project with two partner institutions and a network of centres for people with special needs all around Spain.

My tasks within the project
  • Team coordination
  • Requirements elicitations – survey design and analysis
  • Usability evaluation
  • Evaluation results analysis
