The general aim of the project is to develop gamification non-formal education methodologies and instruments for young people aged 18-23.
The project objectives which are planned to be achieved in a 2 year duration are focused on three pillars.
Creation of 5 new instruments and methodologies using gamification to be tested by 25 youth workers in their activities with 100 young people over the course of a two-year period
Improving professional skills of 25 youth workers by the participation in the creation of gamification educational methodologies and by testing them with 100 young people throughout the project period.
Testing transversal educational impact of the methodologies developed in the project in 5 formal education contexts (university modules in Romania and Greece and schools in Poland, Latvia and Bulgaria).
Gamification is the use of game design and mechanics to enhance non-game contexts by increasing participation, engagement, loyalty and competition. These methods can include points, leaderboards, direct competitions and stickers or badges, and can be found in industries as varied as personal healthcare, retail—and, of course, education.
The results acquired in the project can be divided in several categories
Deliverables such as methodologies, studies and educational instruments based on gamification strategies.
