Serious gaMes for digitAl Readiness of waTer EducatioN = SMARTEN
The digital readiness in all sectors is key more than ever after the challenging experience of COVID19. However, are we ready for this digital transition in the European water education sector? The answer is still vague but many efforts are working together to boost this transition and achieve inclusion for all during this process. To support this we are happy to announce the official launching of a new Erasmus+, strategic partnership project –
What is SMARTEN and why is it key in this current situation?
SMARTEN is an Erasmus+ Programme that targets the higher education and trainings in the topic of water with the following partners: Norges Milio-og Biovitenskaplige Universitet, Univerzitet U Nisu, Panepistimio Thessalias and H2O-People as a business partner.
This project proposes innovative practices based on serious games in education, while addressing the subject-specific of water in line with the European environmental and climate goals. The serious games concept has proved its efficiency in the educational sector mainly in the engineering domain.
SMARTEN supports the digital transition through promoting an educational digital environment of equity, diversity and inclusion. It also strengthens the strategic, structured and virtual cooperation between higher education institutions and business partners in the European water sector.
The project will run for two years with ambitious goals to contribute in the digital readiness and add value to this process. Multiplier activities are planned to deliver water education in a digital and innovative form. Their spectrum covers online, blended and distance teaching and learning.
