Gamification was applied as the basis of their learning during the seminar itself, so participants could explore technology usage in gamified learning processes. They also planed future cooperation and showcased good practices from partner organisations in this field.

Seminar aimed to explore the meaning, purpose and benefits of gamification in the field of education; to learn from existing European practices of gamified non-formal learning and training experiences; and explore various ideas for greater youth engagement and innovation in non-formal education and youth work through gamification.

Open Badges system and badge booklet can be named as a good practice example in our international youth work and this seminar. Open Badges were used to support participants’ reflection and learning process. Feedback collected at the end of the seminar showed that majority of participants appreciated and benefited from the use of badges.
