On February 24th, 2023 in Brussels, Belgium CONNECT International presented the EPITOME project. This project focuses on new methods of Problem Based Learning for educational purposes with the use of MINECRAFT. According to the project’s results, this all-known best-selling open environment game has been turned in a tool for creative and experiential learning methods, which are shown to strongly boost the learners’ assimilation capacity, as well as their motivation for learning. During a short presentation, the basic concept and advantages of EPITOME were analyzed, and we were given some really interesting information regarding the project.
Representatives of MoveIt, as well as of several other youth organizations and institutions joined this event and had the chance to meet in person, exchange views regarding this innovative initiative and explore its capacities through a unique interactive game, understand its benefits and brainstorm on ways to promote this even further towards relevant stakeholders in Greece.
We were glad to learn much about the EPITOME project and broaden our horizons and expertise in new ways of learning. We once again realized how useful technology is in broadening the horizons in the field of Education, and how important it is for learning to comply with the new reality of the digital world.
The EPITOME project is co-funded by the European Union
