Project ARCH: unifying Past, Present and Future

We are thrilled to introduce our innovative project “ARCH: Bringing Cultural Heritage to the digital Era; Unifying Past, Present and Future”, which aims to engage and educate Primary Education students aged 9 to 12 through an exciting combination of a mobile application and a cultural heritage game.

At our first transnational meeting in Patras (Greece), our consortium made significant progress in developing the project’s first and second outcomes: an interactive application and an engaging game centred on cultural heritage. These educational tools are being carefully designed to ignite children’s curiosity, foster appreciation for cultural heritage, and provide a fun learning experience.

Our cutting-edge application serves as a gateway to an immersive world of cultural heritage. Through captivating visuals, informative content, and interactive activities, children will embark on a journey of discovery. They will have the opportunity to explore various cultural sites and engage with the rich tapestry of human heritage. Our application is not just educational; it also ensures an entertaining experience that keeps children captivated and eager to learn more.

In addition to the application, we are working on our cultural heritage game. This dynamic and interactive game invites children to answer questions related to cultural heritage in a fun way. By navigating different locations and historical periods and deepen their understanding of the fascinating world of cultural heritage. Our game tries to merge entertainment with education, making learning an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

In this project our mission is to inspire children to explore and appreciate cultural heritage, and we firmly believe that ARCH will achieve this goal. By combining the power of technology, interactive experiences, and educational content, we aim to ignite a lifelong passion for cultural heritage in young minds.

Educating the adults of the future

The project arises from the need, in many places, for a motivating school environment. In addition to this, if the vast majority of students come from disadvantaged groups, the result is that they lose interest in continuing their schooling and do not achieve higher level education. Besides the fact that they often do not have the means or the opportunities to do so.

The main motivation is to prepare the participants for adulthood, to make them think about the world and the conditions in which they will live and to help with the problems of Europe and the whole world and to try to achieve a more sustainable future for all.

To do so, the project enables all participants to explore, understand, describe and compare lifestyles across Europe, raise awareness, common concerns…, and thus help where it is most needed.

Objectives:

The overall objective of the project is to mitigate academic underachievement and student dropout among disadvantaged people. Collaterally aiming to:

Educating in the spirit of respect, human rights, fundamental freedoms, dignity, tolerance and free exchange of ideas.

Cultivate sensitivity to human issues, civic moral values, nature and the environment.

To broaden knowledge of European countries, their development, problems, culture and history.

The project involves two groups of participants: students and teachers. The main aim is to provide students with the necessary skills to be better adults in tomorrow’s society with the help of teachers. The project foresees the implementation of 5 presential activities in which they will take part and in which soft skills training will be carried out.

Implementation

The objectives of Be Volunteer For Hope will be achieved through:

Innovative extracurricular activities involving students, their families, authorities, the community….;

Collaborations between national and international schools;

Participating in international trips;

Attending workshops;

Develop critical thinking skills;

Collaborating in multicultural teams;

Use of new technologies;

Feedback of knowledge by learning from each other: student-teacher-experts.

Partners:

Turkey, Romania, Spain, Portugal, Latvia and Italy.

New Online Game “Cohesion Island” Launched to Educate Youth and Public About the EU Cohesion Policy

As part of the “Cohesion Policy Stands by you!” information campaign, Aspon Consulting (CY), Alpha Cyprus (CY), Innovation Hive (GR), and GEInnova (ES) have launched a new scenario-based gamified learning experience called “Cohesion Island“. The game aims to educate youth and the public about the Cohesion Policy of the European Union and its role in improving the lives of all EU citizens.

In “Cohesion Island” players take on the role of governor  of Cohesion Island, one of the largest islands of Artea, an imaginary country in the European continent and a member of the EU. They face various challenges which require them to take decisions that will effectively solve the various problems and thus improve the level of well-being of their constituents. Players have access to the city budget for investments, and certain investments may be eligible for co-funding from Cohesion Policy funds. The game also includes a city library, which provides players with useful readings and real examples related to the Cohesion Policy to help them make informed decisions during the game, which are in line with Cohesion Policy’s objectives.

“We believe that ‘Cohesion Island’ is a unique and fun way to educate youth and the public about the Cohesion Policy,” said a spokesperson for the project. “By putting players in the role of a mayor/governor, we hope to provide an interactive learning experience that will familiarize players with the different Cohesion Policy funds and how they are utilized to achieve the policy objectives across the EU. We also want to show how Cohesion Policy funds have a real impact on people’s daily lives.

The objectives of the game are to provide an overview of EU Cohesion Policy, make participants aware of the different Cohesion Policy funds and how they are utilized to achieve the policy objectives across the EU, make participants acquire a deeper understanding of how Cohesion Policy funds have an impact on their daily life, and familiarize players with examples of real projects implemented through Cohesion Policy funds.

“Cohesion Island” is available to play now through this link: https://cohesionisland.eu/

IMPLEMENTATION OF SCALE ACTIVITIES (ACLs)

 

GEINNOVA organised through the SCALE funded Erasmus+ project a piloting activity at the ‘Colegio San Vicente de Paúl’ on 15/03/2023. The activity plan was developed and implemented by Geinnova’s staff, consisting of Micol Petrone, Michela Orrù and Alessandro Marconi. The target group was a class of 20 students aged around 12, supported by their English teacher Carmen Pinilla.

The program of activities was developed by combining the principles of ACLs and the theme of climate change. Applied Creativity Labs (ACLs) equip children and young people with the creative behaviors and thinking skills needed in order to develop innovative solutions to real world challenges. Young people are presented with an overview of a real world ‘challenge’ (ie. Climate change) and then receive bespoke creativity training, which builds their creative capacity to generate solutions.

Creative skills are essential for life, learning and future work: they are highly valued by employers and international organizations such as the World Economic Forum, as they develop positive attitudes, flexibility and openness to new challenges. Additional employability skills are developed such as teamwork, communication, leadership, critical thinking and problem solving. These skills enable young people to be successful in their learning and future careers.

During the ACL implementation in SPAIN, Geinnova’s team worked with young students aged 12 starting with an icebreaker activity called “bish, bosh, what are you doing?”

Then, GEINNOVA staff showed a presentation on climate change, its effects and consequences; supplemented by an overview of ACLs methodologies. The games supplied as ACLs activity combined to the climate change topic were:

– Quiz about climate change

– If climate change was an animal

– If climate change’s solution was an animal

– I don’t like your idea

– Recycling

The recycling activity consisted of using empty plastic bottles in order to create plant pots. To stimulate students’ creativity, they were also provided with materials to decorate the pots. The plants chosen to be grown were lentils, grown in cotton balls. The choice is justified by the fact that these seedlings will need daily care, so as to empower the students.

The main objective of ACLs is the creative problem-solving process, following some steps: 

– Clarify the task

– Think divergently

– Choose an idea

– Think convergently

– Do it in practice

– Refine and improve

– Present

– Review the process

Students embraced the project and activities with enthusiasm, actively participating and practicing the methodologies administered. The result was a good 3-hour lesson on climate change, which allowed the class to think actively and critically about the topic.
