Escape Racism – February Project Update
Each of the Escape Racism partners have been conducting research with the aim of creating a Handbook which provides an overview about the use of games within educational surrounding. Theoretical backgrounds for each of the topics covered within the project, such as racism, disabilities, bullying, modern slavery and borders, are also included.
Examples of best practice educational escape rooms can also be viewed alongside information extolling the advantages of utilising gamification within education. Later chapters summarise the current situation of the determined topics in each of the projects four partner countries, giving an overview of the European position. The research not only contains topic-related data, but also includes discriminatory legislation and jurisdiction, and examples of these which have been made famous by the press and media within the participating countries and beyond.
Infographics have been developed and provided at the end of each chapter, delivering a visual depiction of the research results. These show the most important outcomes of the research for each of the partner countries, and on a European level. The infographics are also available on the project’s social media pages.
The next step of the project will see each of the partners creating Escape Rooms according to the determined topics. With the outcomes of Escape Racism, the consortium will offer new methodologies for educators and trainers utilising new education experiences for youngsters.
