Discover Your Potential! Educational Card Games – Reaching The Stars. Grow and Gain New Opportunities!
We are pleased to inform you that the brand new results of the “Reaching The Stars” project have just arrived at our office in Lublin.
Counselors and adult learners will be able to use card games during both group and individual educational counseling and guidance.
Thanks to the card games, participants will gain insight into the existing or missing competences and skills. Counseling participants will also be able to explore various educational and career opportunities for the future. Thanks to card games, they will broaden their future educational and professional horizons.
We are pleased to inform you that as part of the “Reaching the Stars” project, the consortium is completing work on the Counseling and Advisory Handbook as well as educational card games for use in educational counseling.
The educational materials will soon be available free of charge to all interested individuals, particularly counselors and teachers working with adults.
We are thrilled to announce that we are participating in a workshop as part of the “Reaching the Stars” project!
Together with our partners, we are testing the project’s results, which aim to promote motivation among adult students, a sense of self-efficacy, self-worth, and future orientation. We are very excited to learn about new tools and methods that will help us further develop. We thank our partners for their involvement in the project and for allowing us to participate in such an initiative. We will keep you informed of our progress!
