Description of the Project:
The aim of “GAMIFICA(C)TION IN YOUTH WORK” is to develop youth workers and educators’ competences in Game design and Game facilitation for educational purposes.
Game Based Learning refers to the application of games for learning purposes, having defined objectives, in an educational context.
Gamification is the introduction of game elements to transform an activity into a game-like process.
In this training course you will acquire the skills to design and facilitate Educational Games and test them on spot, getting feedback to support you in their future applicability.
