SWING 2.0: the second transnational meeting
The 2nd Transnational Meeting of Swing 2.0 Project was held on 12 January 2022. The meeting took place online, in compliance with the Covid-19 regulations.
The main aim of SWING 2.0 is following the steps of the successful SWING project and facilitate, with innovative and free tools, the acquisition of basic sign language in different work environments where its use could enhance the integration of deaf community. During the meeting all partners had the possibility to briefly present the results of the first steps in relation to IO1 “Final reports with most useful words to facilitate the communication with people with hearing problems in different important situations/job positions”.
The consortium is currently carrying out several interviews with translators, professionals and hearing-impaired people. In order to promote the success of the SWING 2.0 project, it is an essential goal of the project team to use the expertise, knowledge and interests of personnel from the job positions of Civil Servants, Health Staff, Waiters, Salespeople and Tour Guides. Interviews are conducted to ensure that the materials to be developed (i.e., the sign language video dictionaries and the learning system surrounding them) are relevant and useful for being used in those job positions.
It was a very important occasion of sharing and discussion that strengthened the already solid cooperation between the partners.
