Even though youth unemployment has decreased during the last years, it still remains high in Europe, with more than 3,5 million young people being unemployed. The EU average is approximately 13%, but in many countries the percentage is still higher. The youth unemployment rates are higher mainly in southern European countries, with Greece ranking in the 1st position (39%). These numbers have intensified the need for implementing new methods in education in order to enhance the skills of young people.
According to The Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan the youth unemployment rate in EU could be decreased through the creation of new business. However, teachers do not know an appropriate way to teach entrepreneurship, therefore better teaching methods are required in order teachers to foster the entrepreneurial skills of young people.
The main aim of the Gamify Your Teaching project is to support professional development of vocational competences of teachers and trainers of entrepreneurship and to enhance ICT teaching through an innovative pedagogy and approach to teaching with the use of gamification.
