Technology Tuesday

Congratulations to Imagine!’s own Brodie Schulze, who presented last week at the 2017 Coleman Institute Conference on Cognitive Disability & Technology.

Brodie’s presentation was titled: “Collaborative Care: How a Partnership Between the University of Colorado and Imagine! has Created New Opportunities for Independence for People with Disabilities.”

Imagine! and CU have collaborated to design adaptive technologies to aid increased independence for individuals served by Imagine!. Students work with Imagine! to design assistive technologies that open doors to client’s increased self-reliance. The potential exists for projects to scale and be made available to more individuals in living more independent lives.

For the presentation, Brodie partnered with CU Professor Dr. Melinda Piket-May and a couple of CU students who have participated in the projects, and the group shared their experiences, what they’ve learned during the collaboration, highlighted some specific projects, and discussed what the future might hold.

To learn more about this collaboration, check out the video below, which highlights some of the projects that have resulted from this amazing partnership.
