  3. 3. Our organization’s profile May 16, 2016 VAMCT 15: Investigating the potential for meaningful cultural education supported by cutting-edge technologies 3 Doukas School participates in several EU and National R&D projects & coordinates extensive European Networks. Key areas of research interest: – Cloud computing in Education – Game Based Learning and Gamification – Learning Analytics – STEM Education – e-Pedagogy & e-Portfolios – Career counseling Participation in research projects: – School on the Cloud (www.schoolonthecloud.net) – GameIt (http://www.gameit.gr) – GeoCapabilities (www.geocapabilities.org) – Boys Reading (www.boysreading.org) – FAMICO (www.famico.eu) – Make World (http://www.makeworld.eu)
  4. 4. Education in the face of challenges • Rapid technological advancements. • Availability of a range of digital devices and ubiquitous internet access. • Networks - communities of users. • Content creation instead of consumption of information. • The line between formal and informal learning has blurred. May 16, 2016 VAMCT 15: Investigating the potential for meaningful cultural education supported by cutting-edge technologies 4
  5. 5. The role of culture in contemporary educational systems • Culture has the potential to help individuals become confident and creative community members able to keep pace with ongoing developments. UNESCO/UNFPA/UNDP, “Post-2015 Dialogues on Culture and Development” (2015) • Cultural awareness and expression has been defined as a key competence for active citizenship in today’s knowledge societies. European Commission, “Key competences for lifelong learning” (2006) May 16, 2016 VAMCT 15: Investigating the potential for meaningful cultural education supported by cutting-edge technologies 5
  6. 6. Cutting-edge technologies in the service of cultural education May 16, 2016 VAMCT 15: Investigating the potential for meaningful cultural education supported by cutting-edge technologies 6 Cloud computing technologies • Cloud technologies have begun to be adopted from many organizations across a range of industries and markets (including education). • Main advantages: accessibility, flexibility, scalability, adaptability, cost-effectiveness Digital games and gamification • Digital game-based learning: Use of digital games with the aim to facilitate mastery of content and/or development of skills and attitudes. • Gamification: Infusing a game-like character to non-gaming context with the aim to improve the provided experience.
  7. 7. Cultural education under the lens of two research projects May 16, 2016 VAMCT 15: Investigating the potential for meaningful cultural education supported by cutting-edge technologies 7 education in culture Creation and sharing of gamified educational scenarios. Meaningful and engaging learning environment. Use of cultural learning objects made available through existing LORs (e.g. EUROPEANA). Potential of available Cloud technologies: Specialized services for storing and managing different types of digital content (Cloud-based LORs). Processing power and content delivery mechanisms that may allow access to high quality (cultural) material. Low implementation costs.
  8. 8. #1: Game-supported cultural education The GameIt project philosophy May 16, 2016 VAMCT 15: Investigating the potential for meaningful cultural education supported by cutting-edge technologies 8 Create It Share It Game It Create It • Creation of gamified educational scenarios. • Exploitation of digital educational resources made available from existing LORs. Share It • Sharing of gamified educational scenarios. Game It • Delivery of gamified educational scenarios.
