Hunt for Europe 2.0
Newsletter no. 3
The project is funded by the “ERASMUS +” programme and seven international partners: EnAIP Piemonte (Italy), LudusXR (Denmark), Die Berater (Austria), Wisamar (Germany), Centre 4 Education (Spain), Vardakeios School of Hermoupolis (Greece), and MTU (Ireland).
It’s a mix of learning the language and aspects of everyday life, customs and traditions of a foreign country, with a view of total integration; the most important objective of the project.
On the Development side all 3D environments are now done. We have finalized our game of Hunt for Europe Jeopardy as well as the EU Parliament “HUB”, which is where all the players that want to join the multiplayer games will meet and choose a language to learn. We have also, on top of everything else, managed to create a MAZE where the players have to cooperate with each other to finish the game itself.
We are indeed VERY excited about putting all the individual pieces together into one build and having it all tested.
HFE 2.0 AROUND EUROPE
Young people from around Europe explored HFE2 linguistic capacities in the Greek Multiplier Event held by Vardakeios School
20 High School students from Greece, Poland, Portugal and France together with their teachers attended on Monday the 13th of June our Multiplier Event at Vardakeios School. They had the chance to explore the interactive Hunt for Europe 2.0 language platform through their mobiles and to have an idea of the 3D language game for 2 players which will be fully ready in September. They have set their minds to learn one more language through the HFE platform and to pass the information to their classmates back home. Stay tuned! Μore HFE multipliers will follow from the other partners.
On 29th June we were in Felanitx at the Sant Alfons secondary and VET school to hold our Multiplier Event. All teachers discovered a new way to learn a new language through gaming. They learned how to use the e-learning platform and also they found themselves very interested in the 3D Game. Now they will wait for the game to be available to use and put it into practice with the students.
