In its research on iPad for inclusion, CeDisMa -Research Center on Disability and Marginality- investigates the effects of a pedagogical approach in using iPad at school.  CeDisMa’s main interest areas are: developing knowledge on education, learning, teaching and training professionals in the field of special education needs. The Centre primarily deals with education, special needs and social inclusion. It cooperates with local administrations on projects financed by the EU Structural Funds for equal opportunities. It currently organizes post-graduate courses on care, education and training based on European programs.
