ME4 Invitation Poster

Place of event: University of Naples Parthenope (virtual event)
Date: 26.05.2021

The 4th Multiplier Event of the Framework for Gamified Programming Education (FGPE) Erasmus+ project was planned to be held in Naples, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it will be held online on May, 26, 2021.

In this workshop, we present the final results including the specifications of the gamification scheme and the exercise definition format, and the collection of the produced gamified exercises, and the software.

The workshop has designed in a twofold fashion:

  • A presentation of the educational open-source tools produced by the FPGE project dedicated to programming instructors (both school and university).
  • An inspirational source for students from schools and universities interested in general-purpose coding, computer science, and engineering.

The event is welcome for everyone but requires a mandatory free registration at the following link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fgpe-workshop-on-gamification-in-programming-education-multiplier-event-tickets-153447386263

The actual teleconference link will be provided to the registered attendees.
