​GAME AS A METHOD OF EDUCATION​

Purpose of the Project

This project depends on answering to topics related to lack of motivation, engagement and belonging

 to school that may be one of the primary reasons of early school leaving by using different kinds of games with edagogical purposes, innovative teaching methods and active learning. 

As education institutions, we are aware of the fact that Primary school is first step of basic education.

 Fundamental literacy and numeracy skills have to be developed in primary school because these skills are necessary for academic achievement. If students develop negative attitudesThis pro against school during their primary education, they will transfer them into secondary school. These negative attitudes of students encountered will cause disengagement. A number of research studies verify that these signs of disengagement are preview of early school leaving. The most suitable solution to realize these behaviors and intervene in before it is too late. 

The aim of the project is to decrease these negative attitudes through game based learning. Our students need to be motivated in new ways and games include motivating elements for them. By this way, game has become our start point and we reveal our objectives under the roof of integrating game in our teaching. We will develop positive emotion towards to the lessons and transform negative thoughts into positive. By this means, our students' interest to school will be increased and we will create well-being in both our classes and schools. ​​

One of an essential objective of the Europe 2020 Strategy is reduce the EU average rate to less than

 10 % by 2020. This is our common problem .we, the citizens of Europe; we must set out both to raise awareness of the early school leaving issue, and to find efficient ways out together. 

Educators from different partner countries will exchange experiences and best practices in

 game based learning, and collaborate to foster educational materials useful in teaching and learning with students aged 7-10 years old at the partner schools. ​
