SQLearn organized a workshop in order to evaluate the social game developed in the P4I project. During the workshop 25 people (students, unemployed people, government employees, private sector employees) learned about the P4I project and had the opportunity to access the social game, complete it and fill in an evaluation questionnaire regarding their experience.
P4I – Playing for Interculturality is a European project, ref. 518475-LLP-1-2011-1-ES-GRUNDTVIG-GMP, funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme, Grundtvig subprogram. The project has been approved in 2011.
Background and main objective
While the latest tendencies point at a rather low level of adult population participation in lifelong learning initiatives, despite the increasing efforts in promotion and diversity of programmes, the project aims at developing a social game, offering innovative and attractive means to develop intercultural and key competences.
The P4I – Playing for Interculturality is addressed to all adult training practitioners, as well as teachers, trainers and experts on the use of innovative teaching methodologies, from different educational sectors.
During the life time of the project specific research activities will be carried out on web-based game initiatives in adult education, and intercultural competences will be defined to be trained in informal and non-formal environments. The final reports “Success stories – compilation of game – based initiatives in adults´ education” and “Recommendations for the development of informal intercultural training itineraries” will be available in the “RESULTS” section.
As a result, an innovative social game will be developed that promotes apprenticeship of intercultural competences of European adults, motivating them to take an active role and interact with other users, boosting key competences, such as digital socialization and media literacy in parallel. You can access the social game from the project’s Facebook page.
