PLEIADE project updates

We are delighted to announce that the project website of PLEIADE (PLayful Environment for Inclusive leArning Design in Europe) is now public.

The project partners met virtually with the advisory board members on 18 and 22 March and presented the first three Intellectual Outputs of the project, to be released soon:

  • IO1 – Blended Teachers’ Professional Development (TPD) pathway, led by CNR-ITD (National Research Council, Italy) – This output consists in Blended Training Activities that will be attended by 75 teachers during 13 months.
  • IO2 – Hybrid I4Ts game, led by Open Lab (Italy) – This output is a tangible/digital game aimed to support teachers in designing collaborative and inclusion-oriented learning activities for their students. Any collaborative activity will be designed on the basis of 4 variables: Task, Team, Time and Technology.
  • IO3 – Gamified platform for the Blended Training Activities (BTAs), developed by CNR-ITD and University of Sofia – This platform will host and support the online component of the PLEIADE Training Activities for teachers and specifically the sharing and peer review of the learning activities conceptualised with IO2.

The key contributions of the four partner schools in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece and Italy will ensure that these tools resonate with end-users’ needs and requirements.

The partners also discussed about arrangements for dissemination, accreditation and quality control of the IOs in an informal and playful atmosphere.
