We reported on the training course carried out in February 2020 in Göttingen by the partners of the No Alternative Facts project. Unfortunately, participation in the course was limited to the partner organisations. But we are happy to say that all elements developed by the partnership will be made available to all interested parties through the No Alternative Facts Platform. On the platform you can find three things aimed to promote critical digital literacy:
- The No Alternative Facts Gamification Environment
- The No Alternative Facts Toolbox of Resources
- The No Alternative Facts Modular Learning Programme
The project consortium has developed the training offer to enhance critical thinking and digial literacy among young adults. The programme is made up from three modules, all of which are available through and supported by the gamified platform. The modules are: Continue reading
In most competence development processes action-oriented and productive methods are most effective on developing critical thinking. In our project the learners – young adults – will be encouraged to describe their own experience with ‘Fake News’ in the internet in small videos and other multimedia formats and place it on the gamified platform. After analysing their experiences, the young people themselves develop learning quizzes to test peers about their knowledge of fake news and how they can be detected. Continue reading
We had great days in Porto/Matosinhos. The course offered a comprehensive overview of approaches, tools, and instruments that can be used in career review, management and guidance for older workers.
The following quotation summarises very nicely the general mood after the course:
“Before joining the workshop in Matosinhos I knew why planning of career guidance and management should be age-sensitive, because I worked with a wide range of people, younger and older persons. I reflected on myself and was interested in the topic. Until then I was aware of age-sensitive strengths and threats. During the workshop we received detailed background information and learned how to work with specific methods and tools. I’m now looking forward to using this tools and to work with people, so that I can enhance my competence in the field of planning and preparing career guidance and career management support.”
Now all course participants will plan and implement a learning project to apply and transfer the SASSI Working On approach and techniques in their work.
Gamification in teaching has become very popular in recent years. What does this actually mean and what has it to do with our project?
“Gamification is the use of game thinking and game mechanics in non-game contexts”. And instead of being taught through lesson plans, individuals learn through interactive gamification. Game-like elements in training are: interactivity, progress indicators, unveiling of levels, scoreboards, ranking, badges and awards, social interaction, competition, time limits etc.
The SASSI Working On consortium is organising a 3-day training course on 17.09. to 20.09.2019 in Matosinhos/Porto. The course addresses people with HR responsibility, in-house trainers, line or team managers.
Central topics of the training are: Continue reading
