Digital Games for Learning Event 1

MITA is currently running an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project called CDG4E. On a local level MITA has partnered with the Science Centre within the Ministry for Education and Employment Malta, for the successful implementation of this project. This project aims to enhance the level and quality of digital competences, and relevance of students' knowledge and skill, and to promote student centred learning approaches through the use of ICTs.

As part of this project, a half-day seminar was held on Wednesday 17th January 2018.
