Serious Computer Games as a Teaching Tool - A One Stop Toolkit for Vocational Education Teachers and Trainers who want to use Serious Computer Games in their sessions but need a helping hand. Funded by the Leonardo Transfer of Innovation (TOI) stream of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Commission.
The project SCOGATT aims to identify Serious Computer Games (SCG), use SCG in the curriculum, and develop a workshop in which teachers will learn and be trained in using SCG in class. Another main objective is to transfer the award winning EnerCities, as an example of a successful SCG, to new settings and languages.
The Intelligent Energy Europe project, "Enercities" is an online elearning game for young people to experience energy-related implications. The goal of the game is to create and expand virtual cities dealing with pollution, energy shortages, renewable energy etc. The project has been very successful and has won national awards in both Netherlands and Germany as well as across Europe.
Are you an LLP project manager? Or are you thinking of becoming one? Receive hands-on training on the use of social media as part of an effective web strategy for dissemination activities. The Web2LLP Consortium is currently looking for the real needs and opinion of project coordinators and partners regarding the use of social media. Based on this short questionnaire and according to the results, a 5-day face-to-face training course and a 10 hour online training module will be organised.
What kind of training do LLP project managers need? What are the most important and relevant resources around? This short five minutes questionnaire will help the Web2LLP Consortium to ensure that the resources and training we provide is appropriate, relevant and fit-for-purpose. The results will be published on the Web2LLP website.
The 5-day face-to-face training for both existing as well as potential European project managers will be held via the Grundtvig database in Leuven, Belgium from 18th to 23rd February 2013. During this 5-day residential training, attendees will learn more about the most popular and useful social media channels and managing tools available for LLP projects; creating and adapting a web strategy according to your project needs; and they will participate in a guided visit to an institution that is successfully using social media. Find out more about this course and how to apply for funding here.
The 10-hour online training module (between March-July 2013) will be delivered via videoconference over 5 sessions of 2 hours each to groups of participants (between 15 and 20 per course) located in different countries. Sub-groups will be set up based on language (English, French and Italian). Elluminate will serve as the video conference training platform: it is one of the most robust videoconferencing systems and it allows multiple users to connect in real time with audio, video, text, and tools such as a shared whiteboard. Let us know if you would like to stay informed about the online training sessions.

Projects for policy support and cooperation
The Commission has just published the general call for proposals for 2012 for participation in the Lifelong Learning Programme. Through the programme the EU enables people of all ages to gain experience through studies, training or learning abroad and supports co-operation between schools, universities and enterprises in different European countries.
Funding under the 2012 call will follow five priorities:
- Develop strategies for lifelong learning and mobility
- Encourage cooperation between the worlds of education, training and work
- Support initial and continuous training of teachers, trainers and education and training institutions' managers
- Promote the acquisition of key competences throughout the education and training system
- Promote social inclusion and gender equality in education and training, including the integration of migrants and Roma
These overarching priorities reflect main issues at stake of the political agenda for education and training in the European Union.
All information needed to apply for participation in the Lifelong Learning Programme, in particular the priorities of the Call for Proposals 2012 and the Guide to the programme, are available online at: http://ec.europa.eu/education/llp/doc848_en.htm
