Play & Learn DigiMedia

Welcome to join our Seminar "Playful teaching and learning experiences" on the 25th of January 2019

Welcome to participate in the seminar and workshops, to share experiences on using digital media in teaching practices at the EDUCA fair in Helsinki.

In schools, colleges and universities teachers and other educators have to make everyday decisions about the type of digital tools to use in various teaching situations, and to decide on how and why to use a specific tool or application. The aim of this seminar is to provide hands-on experiences, tools, and material on using digital media in teaching.

"Playful Simulations"

Have you ever thought of teaching using interactive methods such as complex patient simulation scenarios, augmented reality and simulations of an experiment process? This is your chance! Attend our workshop and you will get an idea of such an experience!

"Potentials of playful teaching and learning"

What are some of the potentials of playfulness in education? What is playful teaching and how do we do it (and why should we)? And what are some of the benefits, possibilities and challenges when trying to make learning more playful in adulthood? Attend our workshop and gain insight into knowledge, practice and educational activities in relation to playful teaching and learning. You will also get the opportunity to try playfulness out first hand as you, together with experts on playfulness in higher and further education, will explore magic circles, lusory attitudes and playful learning worlds. This is your opportunity to play!
