About This Project


Digital change and transformation, which manifested itself in every field before the Covid-19 pandemic, gained momentum in the face of the necessities that emerged during the pandemic process and led educational organisations to adapt in their fields. The basic method of the mentioned change is "distance education". Although "production" for students who do not have any disabilities has increased significantly, the production of digital materials for students who need special education has remained limited. These students experienced serious material deprivation in the distance education process during the pandemic period. Considering the negative effects of language and mathematics deprivation on development, it is a necessity to develop the materials that hearing impaired children need in the distance education process.

In our project, we aim to contribute to the distance mathematics education of the hearing-impaired students in the 6-15 age group, which emerged specifically in Covid-19 and will be improved on. Solutions should be developed for needs such as the inability to provide distance education support with appropriate methods and materials that arise in the education of hearing-impaired students during the pandemic period. Studies show that hearing-impaired students experience inadequate early learning experience and language delay due to the difficulties they experience in mathematics. Problems such as the nature of mathematics language and the inability of mathematics teachers to complete the curriculum due to their language-focused work also arise.

MATH project, whose main aim is to improve the mathematics skills of the hearing-impaired students between the ages of 6-15 through distance education, also aims to empower the teachers’ professional working in this field and to provide them with a comprehensive educational material. Thanks to the wide partnership networks to be established with the project, it is aimed to create a common product across Europe on the subject and to raise awareness among all education stakeholders.

Ensuring the participation of countries in different regions of Europe will contribute to both enriching the project content and spreading the project results in a wider area. The current partnership structure reflects the strongest aspect of this project. Participants from different institutions and organizations consist of people who are experienced in the fields of teaching mathematics to the hearing impaired and web design experts, pedagogues and experienced people in these fields.Within the scope of the project, 5 online meetings and 7 transnational meetings and 1 final conference will be held. 2 people from partner institutions will attend the transnational meetings. Participation of personnel with expertise in accordance with the meeting content of these institutions will be ensured in each meeting.

To achieve Math project goals, the activities to be carried out can be summarized as ; examining the curricula of mathematics education for hearing-impaired students from different countries and creating a common curriculum, developing an e-platform that can be used by hearing-impaired students, creating an e-teacher guide book for teachers working in this field, preparing a project article in which all the data obtained during the project are analysed.

Throughout the project, all partners will create a holistic product by adding their organizational experiences. In order to achieve this, working instructions will be prepared and work flows will be followed in line with these instructions. In addition, the products obtained will be tested on target groups, and areas open for improvement will be determined and enriched. The biggest desired effect in the MATH Project consortium is to improve the mathematics skills of the hearing impaired students by providing distance mathematics education in the best conditions and quality. The MATH project is expected to benefit not only the target group of students, but also the teachers who teach them, their families and other relevant stakeholders in the long run. The e-platform, which is the most important output of the project, will allow these groups to develop their mathematical skills anytime and anywhere. Thus, it is desired that the project will be an indispensable source of education in the region where the consortium members are located and later in other countries.
