Open lesson on GVETS online platform at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria

 AIDGLOBAL promoted, today, an open class, at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, attended by 37 students of Social Education courses. The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the Platform and to demonstrate the various ways of its use, in terms of training, courses and personal learning.
In the final phase of the project, it became important not only to present the work developed over the last two years, but also to know the perspective of young students in the area, giving them space to contribute to their vision on gamification, public policies and ways of applying the Platform to the reality of social professionals.
The session was hosted by AIDGLOBAL’s technical team and was supported by Professor Antónia Barreto and Professor Susana Monteiro.
