DIG4LIFE Coordinators Meeting in the University of Cadiz, Spain
After a year of the European Funded Project Dig4Life (Digital for Literacy and Future Education), the project team got together in the Andalusian city of Cadiz, Spain.
The main goal of the Dig4Life project is to develop and pilot-test a serious game among partners from Slovenia, Spain, Austria, Lithuania, Finland, and Italy, using it as a prototype and alternative version of assessing soft skills. The project is coordinated by the University of Roma, which counts on valuable and extensive experience in the field.
From Academia, we expressed our intention of involving teachers from the Vocational Education and Training sector in the development of the serious game through the Association of Vocational Colleges in Slovenia, broadening our impact from a local to a national level.
In Spain, the meeting was held by the University of Cadiz and consisted of an overall update on the project’s progress and planning on future actions. Together with the coordinators’ meeting, a Multiplier Event (in the shape of a conference) took place at the university, bringing together local educational institutions and professionals with our international partners.
We are looking forward to continuing the work on the project and cooperating with the dissemination activities assigned to our institution and the pilot testing of the serious game.
