WHAT WE ARE BRINGING NEW TO THE TABLE
The approach we will take in this project is innovative in terms of the criteria we will take into account in developing intellectual outputs, but also innovative in terms of the intellectual outputs (brand new board games and applications) and we will focus on the following aspects:
Learners need different levels of support depending on their competence.
The educational concept of scaffolding is the application of tailored support to move the learner from their current level of learning to the next.
2. Self-Determination Theory
Learners are motivated by psychological needs of competence, autonomy, and social relatedness through both external and internal factors.
Components of the motivational theory of self-determination explain how gamification elements keep learners engaged.
3. Distributed Content Delivery
Learners have better recall if learning content and tests are spaced out over time.
A distributed approach to learning is where the learning content is spaced out over time and the learner is quizzed immediately after the content has been delivered. This reduces learner fatigue and leads to better recall.
Deliverables such as methodologies, studies and educational instruments based on gamification strategies.
IMPACT & DISSEMINATION
We aim at developing methodologies and instruments that can be easily transferred to other educational contexts that address more or less the same target group, the consortium providing solutions for this.
Project managers will learn how to manageme international projects, manageme large scale projects, budgetary management, time management and of course quality management.
Educational outputs: Two Training Courses (one for Youth Workers and one for young people – testing the Intellectual Outputs).
The 5 organizations in the consortium will develop their capacity to implement European projects and to manage large scale activities and activities that unfold over the period of several years.
Experts in communication and dissemination will elaborate a communication and dissemination strategy, understanding and communicating efficiently.
