Life is not all fun and games. And maybe that is the reason why we feel so good when it is. Games of any kind, are not only a matter of having fun. We learn new languages, acquire new skills, and effectively develop them, become a part of a team, and explore our creativity.
Education is now embracing all the above virtues, developing games and applications focusing on adult students and youngsters alike, that do not only make education a fun process to go through, but also develop skills, that are necessary in the job market. Teamwork and collaboration, creativity, organization, and soft skills, throughout digital and physical educational games!
The Case Of S4EG
S4EG focuses on increasing the capacity of adult educators and staff of adult education organizations, via the gamification of the educational procedures, the development of a curriculum which embraces serious games, as well as trainings and lifelong learning activities for adult learners. The purpose is to introduce educational games in the educational processes and procedures, with 6 serious games and the S4EG Collection of case studies, ready to be used by adult educators in their courses or trainings.
C1 Activity in Ptuj, Slovenia
As you read these lines the partnership has gathered at the beautiful town of Ptuj, in Slovenia, in order to take a first look at the educational games that have been developed so far. Partners from Greece, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, France, and Slovenia, are testing the materials, and evaluating the progress of each game; not only its quality and level of enjoyment, but also the educational impact it has.
