In recent months, as part of its mission related to educational research, CADRE21 has supported several research projects, one of which is led by a team from the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQÀM). .

The “Immersive environments for learners” project seeks to develop new ways of learning for children with special needs, such as motor difficulties or severe learning disabilities.

This project, carried out in collaboration with  and theLucien-Guilbault School in Montreal, also aims to measure the effects of these adaptations on children's success, in particular on their physical commitment and motivation. In addition to providing financial support for this project, CADRE21 will disseminate the results on its various platforms.

The rewarded team

The project was selected as a finalist of the competition From idea to innovation, which took place at UQAM last spring. As underlined by the Vice-Rector for Research, Creation and Dissemination, Catherine Mounier, this competition aims to bring out new ideas, promote inter-faculty collaborations and promote the contributions of university research to the society.

This is how the price Partnership was given to the team of this project and its partners in order to reward its excellence and its potential. The support of the ecosystem of committed partners was a highlight of this project, underlined during the first edition of the Research and Creation Week.

Congratulations again to the entire research team!
