Name of the project: Games 4 The Goals Training Course
Date: 4th until 12th December 2019
City/Country: Belturbet, Ireland
What was the main topic of the event?
Kristina Sikk: Sustainable Development Goals
Johanna Reinald: The main topics of the project were SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and finding different ways to implement games into learning. We had an opportunity to understand how games actually work and how are they made. Also, how to understand European Union goals for the next years.
What was the biggest learning moments on the event for you?
Kristina Sikk: Putting together the bigger picture near the end and when I learnt how easy it is to gamify important subjects.
Johanna Reinald: There were many things that i learned about the myself, cultures and the world of learning. I had to come out of my comfort zone once again, after a long time and i actually enjoyed it a lot, because the group dynamics was so great. Also, the organizers had put a lot of energy under teamwork. I once again understood what an introvert i can be in some situations and how open some cultures are, already by nature. The biggest learning point for me was how deep you can go with reflection after every exercise and how important it is, in the world of learning.
Do you have any plans to continue active in the field? If yes, what?
Kristina Sikk: Right now, I don’t have plans being active in the field, because of work and other stuff, but in the future it could happen.
Johanna Reinald: I give tutoring lessons to one girl and i hope to implement everything i learned in this project into teaching her.
Would you recommend it to your friends? I yes, why? If not, why not?
Kristina Sikk: Definitely, if they’re interested in these topics.
Johanna Reinald: I will certainly try to promote Erasmus to all of my friends anyways, because it`s such an amazing way to study, understand the world and meet new people.
