training course SEE A GAME in Latvia

There will be a training course in Latvia under the title SEE A GAME that will take place in Riga from 7th to 13th April 2013. 2 participants have been already selected to go to this event.

Summary of the Project
The project targeting youth leaders, workers and those working for the elimination of unemployment among young people will gather participants from 10 partners of 10 countries (Latvia, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Ukraina, Belarussia, Georgia and Armenia) to address the challenges and opportunities related to youth unemployment and social exclusion in Europe.
An entrepreneurial attitude is essential for adapting to the fast social and economic developments of our time. SEE A Game is game based activities where using a set of board games, entrepreneurial processes are simulated and entrepreneurial attitudes are stimulated.

“ Often it is the right attitude that makes the diference between failure and success in entrepreneurship.”

Project aim
Through „learning by doing” to acquire a new non-formal working method which in future Project participants (game masters) could use in their own countries.

Problem description
„More than 23 million people are unemployed in Europe today. Unless we can improve our growth rates, unemployment will remain high. We need to keep people in work and create new jobs, including in the “green economy”. (Statement of the members of the European council , 30. January, 2012)”
„In total, 7.5 million people in the 15-24 age group are neither in employment nor in education or training. This means that one in five young people on the labour market cannot find a job. The youth unemployment rate (at over 20%) is twice as high as for the whole working population and nearly three times as high as the rate for the adult active population. In some countries, rates are as high as 40%. Within the same countries situations may differ widely between regions. Moreover, certain groups of the young population (including women, young people with disabilities, youth with migrant background) are particularly exposed to the risks of unemployment, long-term unemployment, early school leaving or inactivity. (Communication from the commision to the European parliament, the council, the European economic and social comittee of the regions / Youth Opportunities Initiative, Brussels)”
The focus on entrepreneurial attitudes instead of on an entrepreneurial knowledge base is the major innovation of SEE A Game. Knowledge and information are not sufficient to succeed in taking charge of one’s own professional, social and personal life.

What is „SEE A Game”? SEE A Game is game-based learning activities where students/players are pushed to develop an entrepreneurial attitude and competencies. Using a set of board games, entrepreneurial processes are simulated and entrepreneurial attitudes are stimulated. In particular SEE A Game focuses on the following ones:  Assessment/Factor analysis  Self-confidence  Motivation  Focusing/goal-orientation  Taking initiative  Out-of-the-box thinking  Organisational competence (information, searching, planning)  Self-reflection  Decision making  Problem solving  Social competencies and empathy  Creativity MENU is a competitive game designed for promoting the development of entrepreneurial attitudes and competencies. However, the game is designed not to allow uncontrolled flaming up and strikes a balance between in-game competition and keeping a socially collaborative learning environment. Each team consist of 2-4 players and in game can take part up to 5 teams. It includes different challenges, that can be played over multiple sessions, and it also allows teachers to create their own challenges and also to mix together with another non formal learning methods. In addition, it also develops creativity, presentation and time management skills as in the beginning each team need to develop a team name and logo, which need to be presented.

FAIR is a collaborative game designed for promoting the development of entrepreneurial attitudes and competencies. Collaborative game means that collaboration is the main driver in the game. However, for the game to remain intriguing, some competition will develop within teams, still maintaining a socially collaborative learning environment. FAIR is designed for sessions with 6 to 24 players. In this game each player represents a catering company and there are used the card decks. Each player’s cards represent the company’s assets, and its goals are stated on the goal card included in the deck . The goal of the game for each player is making an offer to the country fair organizers, getting the contract and achieving her/his individual goals.
