Game ON!

Training Course

12-20 November 2019 | Viljandimaa, Estonia

Game ON! is a training course in Estonia about educational games and how to create them. The activities will be based on a wide mix of non-formal education methods, experiential learning, discussions and creative workshops.

Games are an incredible source of experience and learning, and "serious games" are now widely used in a variety of educational and academic settings. Furthermore, participation to games (in various platforms) is on constant rise. Learning "how to play" and how to use games in educational contexts can be a powerful tool to develop communication, engagement, understanding of differences, and learn how to deal with conflicts.

Objectives:

- to explore games as learning tools in different settings and develop political participation, inclusion and non violent communication.

- to introduce tips and principles of "gamification", to apply in education (discussing also their negative side effects).

- to empower trainers, youth workers and leaders and equip them with tools to increase young people's participation to political life, reduce radicalization and xenophobia, and promote a less violent society.

- to develop Education Games based on the learning needs of different youth target groups 

The project is targeted to youth workers (aged 20+) from Estonia, Italy, France, Denmark, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Finland, Romania, United Kingdom, Spain and Portugal.
