Helsinki region environmental services HSY has sponsored Helsinki region schools gamified digital lessons on circular economy and water-usage. The games are free for schools, and work well also for distance learning lessons in basic education. The games are targeted to three different age-levels, and are available in Finnish. The games are produced together with Finnish Reuse Centre and Seppo.io.
Seppo gamification platform is growing its services in The Gulf Region. The platform has been used in educational organisations in the area since 2017.
Now Seppo also introduces a new service of ready made curriculum based game lessons for UAE schools, and grows its services to meet the needs of corporations. This benefits both segments in the era of connected world with increasing global health threaths.
In February we bring you a mathematics game!
Year 6 - Coordinates & Polygons: The Last Lap is a car race - themed game made in English for age groups 7-9 and 10-12. The game is part of a Seppo+ game package that was created based on English curriculum learning objectives for our United Arab Emirates market. This game is free and accessible for all Seppo users, so you should definitely check it out!
In January we return to the topic of reading and want to draw your attention to literature games. Seppo games don’t always need to be about subjects that have clear answers, but you can also challenge players to really analyse and reflect. We at Seppo are big fans of reading games. We also think that for example substituting that usual essay about a novel read in English class with a Seppo game, offers the pupils a great way to make their way through the book.
According to a study published today by the Finnish Likes Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health, one-fifth of upper secondary school students and over one-third of students studying for a profession move too little, about an hour two days a week.
This month we are bringing you a game that is played indoors as we know that the weather in November is bad pretty much everywhere. But despite the rain, you can still take your class outside the classroom and embark on an adventure, exploring what your city has to offer in the form of libraries or museums, for example.
