Gamify Your Lesson

Active and game based learning in practice

Playing is one of the most natural ways to learn and one of our basic human needs. Games engage us in and provide the space for learning new things and for interactions with others. Through games we can engage students in the learning process, start the group discussion,  introduce the topic in a more interactive way and prolong the learning effect. Playing also helps to develop problem solving skills, critical thinking, communication and social skills.

It is an effective (and funny!) way to engage students who are not interested in the topic,  promote active participation in your classroom, foster motivation and create a space where your students can discover, experiment and learn.

At the training you will also have the opportunity to play different educational games and get inspired to use them in practice at your classroom. You will get equipped with materials and resources in different languages.
