INTENT – Job shadowing in London

Jobshadowing in London – Schülerförderung mal anders

Im Rahmen unseres KA1 Projekte INTENT hatte ich die Möglichkeit ein 2,5 wöchiges Jobshadowing bei einer spannenden gemeinnützigen Organisation in London. Jobshadowing bedeutet, dass ich den Kollegen dort über die Schulter geschaut habe und mich von deren Projekten und ihrer Arbeit inspirieren lassen durfte. Meine Gastgeber waren 15billion ebp – eine Organisation im Osten Londons, die Schulen im Stadtteil Borough of Newham dabei unterstützt, SchüleInnen auf den Übergang in die Berufswelt vorzubereiten.

Health Points – Gamified but how?

In the framework of our KA1 project training course in Palermo the Health Points projects was presented as an example of making use of gamified elements in a Moodle environment.

13 educators from adult education and universities worked together on exemplary training activities on health prevention for young disadvantaged people with the aim to become familiar with opportunities that Moodle offers in terms of interactivity and the use of gamified elements. They developed for example an interactive video on eating and drinking habits, a map with food and alimentary traditions at global level, a memory on celebraties that have abused of drugs or alcohol to show the effects of the abuse … . This was very revealing and inspiring and helped enormously to develop subsequently the learning units for the Health Points project.
