The game as a self-awareness building tool

Introduction:

We believe that playing is not only a good way to spend your free time in a useful and smart way but it might prevent drug and alcohol addiction as well thanks to its developed skills. The programme of the training course contains self-awareness games that can help participants to get know themselves, and other youth workers and youngsters as well, while paving the way for a possible and more successful lifestyle in the future. We will show how learning skills, focus and attention skills, memory and self-discipline can be improved through game playing.

Objectives

This course wants participants to:

  • Give playing methods and consciousness to the teachers and leaders how they can involve playing in the life of their organisation
  • Learn how they can use this tool consciously for handling issues
  • Experience through their own experience the games, which can consciously build in the everyday life
  • Learn leadership developing methods
  • Learn the methods of the questions connected to the games, the elements of the leader’s behavior, the importance of the positive attitude by introducing games;

The thematic elements of the training course contain:

  • Personality developing, thinking developing, talent mentoring, self-knowledge, self-reflection, self-estimation, compensation of disadvantages
  • Team building games (cooperation games, competitions)
  • Learn to learn: (logic developing, memory developing, learning by plan, attention, concentration)
  • Games help to socialize (cooperation, competitive behavior, communication, value creating, leisure time programmes)

Methodology

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use: Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.

Certifications

We will hand out:​

  • Certificate of attendance, which will include title of course, main training content and dates;
