Episode 6 of the Talking Youth Work podcast is with Gabi Steinprinz about Educational Escape Rooms.
Gabi is – in her own words – a game addict, and also a creative person, so in a project also funded by Erasmus+ she decided to experiment joining the gaming part of escape rooms with the learning/educational part.
The results were very interesting, with a high engagement of the learners, interesting challenges, the focus on the learning and especially the fun part.
Educational escape rooms can be used to help young people deal with all kind of social issues, as for example gender discrimination.
It was a nice conversation that showed us a very innovative way on how learning can be an immersive experience.
