Learning outcomes

The learner has also gathered knowledge and information about interactive, co-operational and cultural skills needed when traveling abroad in general and when participating in student mobilities within European framework.

Delivery guidelines

Gamification process is, or should be, self-regulated, autonomous and independent. The Seppo Game is designed to be used by anyone who has a pin-code, sent by the instructors.

If needed, when a learner has completed the cycle of assignments on both levels, there can be a discussion of the contents and their implementation.

Pedagogical guidelines

Learning by Seppo-Game is based on the pedagogical principles of gamification;

  • all learning is based on appropriate motivation; gamification offers instant rewards for performed tasks
  • learning should be fun, engaging and participatory; gamification makes the learning process non-threatening, inviting and accessible
  • learning by gamification is rewarding because it provides a learner with appropriate amount of challenge for each task and encourages a learner to approach each task with a confidence and sense of discovery
  • each task provides a learner with some information about different aspects of the whole

in their entirety the tasks of Seppo-game provide a coherent framework for a theme, which in this case is the European cultures, respect of diversity and skills needed when travelling abroad
