Creativitas invites organisations to join seminar about gamification in non-formal education context. We are applying for a seminar to Erasmus+
GAME ON: greater engagement with game design
Group size: up to 24 participants, up to 4 participants/country
Dates: first week of December 2014, up to 5 days (excluding travel days)
Place: Vilnius region, Lithuania
Gamification is a process of applying game elements in non-game environments. Gamification is a concept that promises a great engagement in any activity. What about learning? We are a team of non-formal education practitioners who are interested in exploring further how non-formal learning practices can benefit from gamification. We aim to reflect and exchange our practices, learn from other professionals, explore relevant researches and theories, develop further our practices.
And we are…
…trainers and facilitators of learning. We have experience in developing gamified learning activities, but we are still on the way exploring the concept of gamification. NGO Creativitas team in cooperation of Association of Non-formal Education in Lithuanian started to spread the word of this fun, playful and engaging concept in the field of education.
Currently we are involved in implementing UNIQUE Learning Badges (http://www.learningbadges.eu) project. This innovative project brought us to the concept and practice of gamification – using game design principles and elements to improve the engagement in various fields of human practices.
We are curious and interested to explore how we can improve our working practices using the best from the game world.
What if gamification is the future of non-formal education? Then trainers and facilitators in the field need some superpowers. Let’s bring it to the next level!
NGO Creativitas is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that has a mission to contribute to the development of continuous learning, open and tolerant society, which would be able to design innovative solutions in order to cope with emerging social challenges.
