Activist Social Worker Using New App to Teach All Terrain Wheelchair Use
Learnie, a community-driven microlearning platform bridging the digital divide by making learning accessible and approachable to all, has teamed up with the Aimee Copeland Foundation which makes the impossible possible again for all people who have experienced a disability.
Learnie’s mobile video app allows for the creation and sharing of community microlearning courses. These Learnies will support the Foundation’s efforts to empower people of all abilities to lead fulfilling and joyful lives, while experiencing the outdoors. The Foundation’s goals for the partnership with Learnie are wide-ranging, but start with a training effort in November when ten new all-terrain wheelchairs will be delivered.
“Education is key to our All-Terrain Georgia program, which requires that users practice safe and sustainable riding behaviors in our state parks” stated Aimee Copeland. “Learnie’s technology is a perfect fit for providing our training materials to participants while also building a learning community of bidirectional information sharing that helps us improve our programs.”
Led by Aimee Copeland, a licensed clinical social worker with a background in ecopsychology, a quadruple amputee, and a necrotizing fasciitis survivor, ACF inspires hope through action, builds community through inclusivity, provides healing through relationships, fights stigma through education, and breaks down barriers through compassion and humor.
“Our mission is to lift communities by making learning more democratized, decentralized, and accessible. We don’t want to leave anyone behind with our community microlearning technology. Aimee, to us, is doing the same thing. She’s making sure no one gets left behind who’s experienced a disability and that people of all abilities reach their human potential. That message really resonates here at Learnie,” says Learnie co-Founder and Board member, Pete Mastin.
Learnie is redefining how people learn together. It delivers on-demand microlearning content that hones critical thinking capability and empowers life-long learning. In the coming months, Learnie will break ground on its revenue-generating content marketplace, further allowing content creators to “Share Their Knowledge & Earn Their Share” in the process.
Mastin continues saying this of the partnership, “We’re very excited and honored to work with Aimee and have Learnie help her deliver on her mission. We believe learning is broken, and we’re here to fix it in communities anchored by special organizations like Aimee’s all across America.”
