Game-Based Learning for Deaf Students

The GBL4deaf research main goal is to assess the potential of digital games in teaching mathematics to deaf children, students of the 2nd and 3rd cycle of Basic Education. The following specific objectives are: a) assess the efficacy of video games for learning mathematics in deaf children, through a comparative research design, using intrasubject comparisons (baseline and endline) and inter-subject comparisons (control group and experimental group); b) Longitudinally analyse the process of learning mathematics in deaf children; c) to measure the engagement of videogames usage for learning; d) to develop a serious game in a user-centred approach.d) To disseminate the results for all stakeholders involved in deaf children education: Policy makers, Eduactors, Families, Associations, media and general Public

Three dimensional motion analysis for monitoring of rehabilitation and high performance training of the equine athlete.

The aims of his project is validate several rehabilitation techniques for horses through the kinematic three – dimensional analysis of their locomotion with the vicon system. The population of this study are horses with previous clinical diagnosis that are admitted on rehabilitation center, and a specific protocol for musculoskeletal pathologies diagnosed is applied to them. Biomechanical evaluation is performed prior to initiating the protocols, throughout its execution and at the end of it.

Aural Experience, Territory, and Community

Based on the aural experience in two parishes of the municipality of Lisbon, Alvalade and Belém, we intend to draw the relationship of the communities with their neighbourhood. Through dialogues with its inhabitants, with the sound and visual mapping of neighbourhoods, we want to understand what areas exist or are necessary for a greater participation or inclusion of urban life; what aspects of the sensitive culture have deteriorated or remain as agglutinators of social life; and what can be done, at the level of acoustic ecology, to maintain an aural experience that brings well-being and identity to the community. With this project, whose objectives could be applied to other neighbourhoods in the city, we intend to unite an ancestral sensitive culture to the notions of time, space, community and renewed identity, in part, by the use of reproduction technologies. The works to be developed will be included online in the website Lisbon Sound Map
