Organization profile

GIIATA has designed a new model for the development of prototypes to support special education, based on the theory of significant learning from the American psychological and pedagogical and starting from a multidisciplinary cognitive environment.
This model has been used for 3 years and puts forward the following ideas:
Interaction: the students involved in the different research projects interact with the technological model that will allow the development of prototypes to support special education, proposing ideas and generating questions about their implementation, use and future tests.
Have previous knowledge: students and university professors interact with special education professionals in order to generate new ideas and paradigms. To be willing to work if the technology is used properly, children will feel motivated to learn, being this a fundamental factor to have an adequate teaching process.
It is also important to note that the GIIATA is characterized by a multidisciplinary team that includes professionals in the areas of electronics and computer science and has the support of psychologists, speech therapists, doctors and other special education professionals.
Another important strength of GIIATA is that it has a modern laboratory where students and professionals can adequately develop their activities since they can always count on the accompaniment of the members of the group. The group has also established important research links with other university institutions, development centres and special education institutions.

Organization profile

UPS currently has several research groups and laboratories, including the Research Group on Inclusion Technologies and Artificial Intelligence (GI-IATa). It is also essential to point out that UPS has been a pioneer in the development of various research projects related to the support of special education in various areas of disability: Children's Cerebral Palsy (CIP), visual and hearing problems, prevention, autism, etc. In the same way, GI-IATa has developed for more than 5 years around 50 prototypes or technologies to support special education, through research projects that have been channeled through final degree work, internships, subject work and extensions and where it has collaborated with important institutions among which stand out: the National Council on Disabilities (CONADIS), the Special Institute for the Blind and Deaf of Azuay (IEISA), the Institute of Cerebral Palsy of Azuay (IPCA), the Special Fiscal Institute "Stephen Hawking", the Foundation "General Dávalos" and the Pilot Institute of Integration of Azuay (IPIA).
