Pilot study at Greek primary school

Research: Pilot study at Greek primary school

The prosocial game Path of Trust was successfully presented to pupils of Ellinogermaniki Agogi on 16 November 2015. Almost 20 third grade primary school children had the chance to play the game, express their trust and collaborative skills towards their classmates – a first-hand experience of prosocial behaviour.

At the beginning of the activity, the rationale of Path of Trust was explained and how the game was played. The time that the rest of classroom waited for their turn to play was devoted to prosocial classroom activities, aimed at familiarising pupils with prosocial behaviour and setting-up a pedagogical framework for the games to follow.

Children’ response was very positive; they enjoyed the Path of Trust game and expressed their interest to play again in the future.

These pilot activities by members of ProsocialLearn consortium partners Ellinogermaniki Agogi (Dr. Lilia Dimaraki, Dr. Anna Zoakou) were supported by ProsocialLearn consortium colleagues Mr. Konstantinos Apostolakis and Mr. Kiriakos Stefanidis from the Centre of Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH), who explained to the young participants how to use the Path of Trust game sensors and play.
