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. Dies ist im Borough of Newham von besonderer Bedeutung, da es einer der einzigen beiden Stadteile von London ist, in denen ethnische Minderheiten die Bevölkerungsmehrheit stellen. Continue reading

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.

EMPROVE – Partner Meeting in Göttingen

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 info@bupnet.de

Health Points – User consultations

The project aims to develop an attractive interactive game-based learning strategy and accompanying resources to support trainers and educators working with disadvantaged young adults, in order to increase their capacity, competency and the resources available to them to promote healthier lifestyles and wider well-being.

To find out which health topics are of particular interest and should thus be considered in the development of the game, all Health Points partners consulted both trainers and young people to ask them about their perceptions and interests. Continue reading
