Game Based Learning to Alleviate Early School Leaving


A team of educators from Malta, Austria and Sweden will work in parallel with experts specialised in GBL and Education from Donau University and the University of Malta. The team of Secondary School educators will transform into 'agents of change' within their school districts and will benefit from the project partners' technological and pedagogical expertise that is based on best practice in GBL and engagement of potential early school leavers. The sharing of European and international best practices and knowledge is an essential component of this Strategic Partnership because it will help create a more modern, dynamic, committed and professional environment inside schools and in academia as a whole. Participants will disseminate knowledge gained through the partnership to their colleagues locally, across Europe and internationally which may facilitate the adoption and implementation of the GBL toolkit and serious educational games into school curricula.
