Maseltov: learning basic language skills through mobile services
In terms of e-inclusion, there still is a world to win in Europe. The FP7 project MASELTOV recognises the major risks for social exclusion of immigrants from the European information society. The consortium involved researches and develops novel ICT instruments to foster local community building, and to raise consciousness and knowledge for the bridging of cultural differences.
Mobile based services for the appropriation of highly relevant daily skills
E-inclusion at the interplay of learning and social computing
Through its accessible technology and a regular learning programme, the project motivates immigrants for the appropriation of the local second language. This should lead to basic literacy, and an increased cultural understanding. MASELTOV takes advantage of the interplay between learning and social computing in order to apply learning through communication as well as in the situated context, meaning right at the spot where it matters, for instance when making a purchase.
