Recently FYCA members and volunteers took part in a youth exchange project entitled "Aiming by Gaming" in Varna, Bulgaria. The main aim of activity was to raise the competencies of participants through discussions on concepts of Game-Based Learning and Gamification.
Hosted at a beautiful seaside, the project brought together almost 30 young people from Italy, Lithuania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Georgia and Armenia to exchange practices and learn from each other.
Developed as a flow of games, the international project introduced concepts of not only gamification and game-based learning, but also Learning by doing, Simulation, Informal and Non-Formal Learning, and helped significantly to develop and improve teamwork, communication, cooperation and presentation skills of the participants. One of the key sessions in the project was called “Gamify it”, in which teams successfully suggested solutions for issues in the aspects of Education, Environment, Minorities, Sports, and Fewer opportunities.
