Triple Edge was an international partnership between Arts University Plymouth and international partners Syntra West (Bruges,BE), Pro Work (Middelburg/Rotterdam (NL), Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (Larissa, GR), Winston Wolfe (Ghent, BE).
E-dge supported Vocational Education and Training, promoting tailor-made and participatory approaches that use gamification and digital tools to enhance entrepreneurial and digital skills in learners, companies and teachers. The activity focused on four key skills - Flexibility, Leadership, Communication and Problem Solving
Four mini games were developed as as an innovative educational tool, supported by Training Resources, to ensure:
games were integrated effectively into the learning environment
teachers and trainers will be able to utilise the mini games in their teaching practice
learners and employees improve these key skills
they can communicate and translate them into their personal and professional development
As part of the Triple Edge project Arts University Plymouth piloted digital accreditation using a digital open badging system. Badges were awarded when participants complete a learner journey, play a game and acquire a skill!
An open badge is a visual, digital and reliable proof of an acquired skill or competence that can be assigned to the users LinkedIn, CV or blog post
Triple E-dge had three competency levels. Engage - Demonstrate - Participate.
