eConfidence partners meet in Croatia for the third project meeting


For the eConfidence project, 2018 kicked off in a positive manner with the experimental stage of the project just around the corner and all partners coming together for the third project meeting in Rijeka.

On 22 February, project partners met on the Croatian coast town, at the headquarters of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka (one of the project research partners). In a full day productive meeting, they discussed from overall project management, to specifics linked to the research development, educational possibilities of the video games, business development and pilot actions.

The pilot tests started in November 2017, when 10 selected schools from European English speaking countries and Spain liaised with eConfidence partners for the pre-test questionnaires. Currently, the experimental stage of the pilot actions is being prepared, when pupils will actually have the chance to play the eConfidence serious games on bullying and safe use of internet. By the end of the academic year 2017-2018, the schools will carry on the post-test questionnaire, giving then the full landscape for eConfidence partners to carry on the research reports. More information on the pilot actions is available here.

If you are interested in finding out more about the eConfidence outcomes, stay tuned with us in the following months to learn how confidence in behaviour changes through serious games! The research results aim to increase the use of serious game in the classroom and mainly to reshape the ludic perception of games into a positive resource for young people, teachers, parents and carers.
