LABOR AND EDUCATIONAL INCLUSION OF DISABLED PERSONS  

OBJECTIVE

Design, develop, and evaluate an intelligent recommended ecosystem as support for the subsystem of human talent provision with disabilities in the Ecuadorian industry, based on ICTs and educational simulators for the development of labor competencies.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Work Group on Labor and Educational Inclusion of people with disabilities focuses on the development of methodologies, smart tools, electronic devices, and the creation of proposals that allow people with disabilities to develop employable skills. To this end, the group will develop research processes on the complex relationships that exist between disabilities and how they affect the generic and specific skills that are required for certain positions in the industrial field. In order to accomplish these tasks, the work group on labor and educational inclusion will combine elements, theories, and tools of organizational psychology, medicine, inclusion, education, and ICTs and intelligent systems (expert systems, machine learning and pattern recognition). With this, it will be able to develop knowledge models that allow the generation of innovative tools to support decision making, the diagnose business needs and the pre-employment preparation of people with disabilities. With this objective, the work group will have a team of professionals from different scientific fields such as Organizational Psychology, Systems Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Education, Special Education, and Clinical Psychology.

BENEFITS

The development and implementation of this project will allow the following benefits and impacts:

  • Provide a smart recommender for the support to institutions that include people with disabilities, through the CEDIA portal, to favor their inclusion in labor processes.
  • To have educational simulators for the development of labor competences, as technical methodological support.
  • The participating universities and CEDIA will have a knowledge base that will enable them to develop new work tools in the field of labor inclusion, based on artificial intelligence, labor
  • psychology, and educational inclusion.
    Pillars will be established for the development of collaboration alternatives between the fields of labor psychology, inclusive education, and technology to favor establishing public policies for the benefit of people with disabilities.
