By January 2, 2020 No Comments

A new Erasmus+ project is ready to take-off!

The PLAY2LEARN KA2 School Project (Reviving hands-on educational play for learning skills of tomorrow) aims to design and assemble a PLAY2LEARN KIT to support teachers to deal with programming structures, physical computing concepts and promote STEM-related skills among their students. The PLAY2LEARN KIT will be introduced with the use of animated videos based on several examples that will reveal its potential as a hands-on educational play tool.

Emphasys Centre is pleased to be part of this strong consortium and offer its expertise as an ICT and Robotics Centre. The kick-off meeting of the PLAY2LEARN project was organised in Edinburgh, UK on the 17th of December 2019. During the meeting, the main objectives and the first outputs of the project were analysed and the consortium is now ready to start contributing towards the development of the tool!

A big thank you to the coordinator and hosting organisation of this project @CIVIC Computing Limited (United Kingdom), as well as the rest of the partners DLEARN (Belgium), IDEC (Greece), CCS Digital Education(Ireland), Platon (Greece) and SCHOLE (Portugal) for the great cooperation.
