25 Teachers from 5 countries met in early June 2016 in Magdeburg and Hedersleben for a training course for teachers within the framework of the TELLE project. A wide variety of activities set to enhance the professional competence were undertaken, as well as a diverse social program to foster team spirit.
The Face Value project had the final meeting in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in July 2016, and the training course materials are now ready for use, after having tested and adjusted it according to local needs. Plovdiv is Europe’s oldest city and will be the European Capital of culture in 2019.

Two of RSBDF teachers have just come home from a 5 day teaching visit to Keflavik, Iceland where they taught Icelandic students in arts. The main focus was on silver jewellery classes, where they learned how to make their own bracelets, pendants and other items. This was a part of the TELLE project teaching visit. The event was held at the premises of the Viking museum in Keflavik. Thanks to Herluf Aartun and Asta Kjeilen
The Face Value project has now released the training modules in several languages. A pedagogical report with tips on how to link the teaching in line with the EQF system is also ready. These materials can be found on the project website.
In April 2016 the Lighthouse team with Victoria Hansen from RSBDF met in Athens to go through the web platform and system for supporting career paths for migrants. In connection with this the team visited housings for refugees in Athens area. They were placed in many very different places, especially older hotels. The standard was surprisingly good as far as we could judge, so Greece did a good job with these.
The MEAL project team has just received confirmation that the MEAL project has been accepted for presentation at the GOWELL 2016- EAI International Conference on Games for WELL – being in BUDAPEST, Hungary 14-16 th June 2016.
The EAI Games fOr WELL-Being conference builds upon the increasing relevance of applied gaming approaches, gamification techniques and game-related technologies and devices for health and wellbeing management and recovering. Traditional approaches, albeit efficient, often falls short in engaging the individual and in fostering her interest in actually following a treatment or prevention. The adoption of gaming-related techniques in situations where health and well-being are involved can push individuals to engage willingly in activities to improve their lifestyle as well as in participating to prevention programs or treatments.
The paper entitled “Validation of a serious game designed to teach Nutrition Education to children:
Pick it!” will be presented at the ISRII 8th Scientific Meeting 7. – 9. April, 2016 in Seattle, USA;
