USING EDULARP METHOD FOR CIVIC EDUCATION IN EUROPEAN CONTEXT
LARP (Live Action Role Play Game) is a combination of game, simulation and improvised theater. Educational LARPs consist of a storytelling part in which the context and the world that participants operate in is described, the creation of characters that participants become and the rules of the game that everyone plays. LARPs can also involve some additional elements like props, scenography and intrigues that together create the complete story. This story lets participants experience unknown and play the game in the way that emphasis valuable content, as well as develop their competences: knowledge, skills and attitudes.
The concept of LARP is well known around the world, but can it be used for educational proposes? Educational LARPs are based on the achievements of different types of LARPs: chamber LARPs, Nordic LARPs, or simply drama theater and simulation methods, but how can we adopt it to the learning objectives of participants. However, methodology adopted to the context of youth work and Erasmus+ program is not yet developed. We will change it.
During this training we will adopt the eduLARP methodology to be used in international youth work in the context of Erasmus + program. After the training participants will be able to run and design LARP scenarios that tackle social problems and civic education.
