Teachers play at Educa
Visitors are invited to join the Educa game, which takes the players around the expo centre to explore the exhibition and the program.
Educa, the largest event for the education and training sector in Finland, will be held 29–30 January 2016. This year the theme is digitalisation of teaching and learning. By joining the Educa game visitors can explore the exhibition and the program in a fun way. The game is played with smartphones and tablets by moving around the expo centre. The players must complete tasks that require creativity, playfulness and utilising location-based information.
We have created the game in cooperation with the main organizer Opetusalan Ammattijärjestö OAJ, the Trade Union of Education.
Join the game and win a prize! The prizes include seppo licences and iPads. To join the game login on our home page. The login code will be updated in January.
