Here it is a little but still GREAT presentation we made which reveals the relationship between gamification and Project GREAT!
This is an article written by Miguel Luís in Pessoal, a magazine held by APG, one of our Partners. He really is passionate about this project!
Learn, by Playing
Have you ever thought how wonderful it would be if the time your son spends playing video games incorporated learning and that same learning could be recognized? This was the question that ignited the project Engage Learning (www.engagelearning.eu), predecessor of Project GREAT which is being promoted by APG and that you have certainly heard about here in Pessoal magazine.
Engage Learning culminated in the development of a catalogue and a methodology of game application in learning that arose from the exhaustive uplift of skills that are worked in several games. The idea here was to leverage it in Higher Education.
Project GREAT has the mission to, during two years, transfer the Engage project, extend the horizons of application of the methodology to the training market and its professionals.
The Institutional Partnership, which formed the basis of the European candidature, is composed by FH-Joanneum – University of Applied Sciences in Graz, the MERIG Institute, Gazi University in Turkey, the AIF – Association of Italian Trainers and IZone Romania.
Endowed with great ambition, we tried to broaden our partnerships so we have at the present time several associated partners, like ISCTE-IUL, ETDF, Jacques Delors Center, University of Beira Interior and INA. But GREAT demands a wider range of players, so we want to involve game producers, professional training firms and Engineering and Business Schools, into a unique country partnership.
To do so we are counting on you and your participation. If you are interested in the Game-based Learning theme, contact APG and find out how you can be part of the many GREAT teams we have.
Be a GREAT Learner!
GREAT’s Communication Coordinator
In the research phase the partnership is looking to gather information about the existence and the use of games for learning and training within the partnership countries: Portugal, Austria, Italy, Romania, Turkey as well as in all European countries.
Aim of this survey is to call industry and learning organizations, within the different countries, for your cooperation and collaboration.

“How to teach with technology? Finding the passion in learning”
Maja Pivec, November 10, Bucarest, Romania
Development Partnership has its Kick-off Meeting. It was focused on discussing main actions and products to be develop.
Two days of intense work and good partnership: a basis to future paths.
Questions to be pursuit on Game-based Learning: what areas are emerging? what are the needs? Who is using and producing games? Why they are getting more and more relevant for learning?
The first presential meeting on Project Great will take place November 10 and 11 2011 in Bucarest, Romenia.
Representatives of all Partners will debate and work together in the main steps within project, and aim to initiate a constructive work process that shall allow us to make game-based learning central on education and training discussions – a tool to mobilize people to recognize that informal and nonformal learning can also be part of formal curricula.
Follow us on our ambition.
