IO2: Curriculum and Story boards The ODISSEU Curriculum goes hand in hand with the Online Game and provides the teacher with a background about the educational frameworks used during the development process of both the tool and the curriculum, and an overview of the learning outcomes. It also provides teachers with practical classroom activities and resources that can be used in conjunction with the Online Game.

IO4: Online Simulation Game ODISSEU presents a game in the form of an interactive storytelling experience for secondary students. The game follows a young person’s journey from oppression in their home country to exile in a country of asylum. The story aims to increase understanding and raise awareness of refugee issues amongst secondary school students while developing life skills.
