The Technology from Everyone to Each and Everyone of Us - TEC++US - was founded under the ERASMUS+ Project and emerges from the EU Commission's 2020 strategy, aims to promote "growth and jobs for the current decade, with a focus on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth as a means of overcoming structural deficiencies in the European economy, improving competitiveness and productivity and to ensure a sustainable social market economy. "
Our primary objective was to create a transnational tool, which facilitates the learning of useful basic words/expressions/questions to kids, during the first week of adaptation to a new country, or in acquiring language skills in basic school. It is hoped that after this week using the application that the user will acquire more vocabulary than what is available in the application, by the simple fact that individuals will enter into active conversation with other individuals with the help of the application, will associate the available words more quickly, and will begin to associate them with new words by direct interaction with the language. This tool will serve not only the school in learning a new language, but also, when needed, in support of citizens' mobility between countries of the European Union, using a logic of universal design conception.
Any children that travels to another country, for example in an Erasmus + exchange program, like the ones some of us have participated in, will be able to communicate instantaneously with other children with the help of the application.
The content is the TEC++US brings whar was needed for kids to engage in a communication with other kids when they don´t know each other’s mother language, so that by doing so they won’t be retracted in making questions, giving answers or making new friendships.
It encourages us to be able to contribute to the mobility of each and every citizen of the European Union, including the most disadvantaged, because most of them cannot get support from third parties to communicate in foreign countries, and that makes them choose not to travel outside their country for fear of being unable to express abroad.
TEC++US aim to solve a communicational problem and at the same time to help in the introduction of a new language, the European Pictographic Communication Language (EPCL).
This initiative aims to create a transnational tool, which facilitates the learning of useful basic words/expressions/questions to kids, during the first week of adaptation to a new country, or in acquiring lenguage skills in basic school.
