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.
The EMPROVE team is currently in Germany (April 2018), reviewing the feedback from testing the EMPROVE innovative platform in six EU countries … the official public launch of the platform is approaching!
The platform offers various missions to support women survivors of domestic violence to empower them by supporting them in reflecting on their strenghts and values. The platform is based on the theory of gamification and uses gamified elements aimed to engage the DV survivors in a long-term journey of empowerment. The platform combines solving different online or live missions and achievements, in addition to the face-to-face sessions with a counsellor, using also the power of the own self-confidence.
If you want to try out the platform, please contact the EMPROVE team at firstname.lastname@example.org
BUPNET was successful in applying for funds for their continous professional develpoment of their staff. The KA1 project entitled INTENT – Intercultural competences and development for new target groups is funded within the framework of the EU Erasmus+ education programme and offers our employees and teaching staff the opportunity to gain new impulses and ideas for improving their own practice and to extend their practical competences in during teaching or learning stays in other European countries. In the next months our staff members will go abroad and either be involved in job shadowing activites or in training courses. The team is very much looking forward to this experience!
