Do you know St. Augustine's College? An ALARVA initiative for times of virtual social interaction
It is a special year for teaching,everything involved in the daily life of an educational center, which goes far beyond the classrooms, also becomes special. An Alumni Association allows many people of different generations to maintain contact and remember with joy and mutual support their childhood years. But it should also look for creative ways to meet and celebrate during this time of pandemic.
In the case of Colegio San Agustín of the Augustinian Recollects in Valladolid (capital of Castilla y León, Spain), ALARVA, the Association that brings together alumni of all generations (the College has had external students since 1966) usually holds face-to-face meetings, sporting and solidarity events, parties... But this course 2020-2021 activities needed to have a different nuance to be celebrated with peace of mind.
To do this, they have devised a challenge through an entertaining questionnaire on which, whoever wants it, can answer a series of questions. Some seem easy and simple, but several will surprise and for others you must have a good general knowledge of the center.
Any alumni or member of the educational community of St. Augustine can answer this since it is carried out by the Kahoot platform. Just make up a nickname (Nick) and start answering.
In addition, if the responder belongs to the ALARVA association and hits all questions, he may win a prize, since among those who score a 10 in this exam are entered in a drawing of five checks of 20 euros redeemable on Amazon. To do this, it is sufficient that the “Nick” chosen before participating uses a data that allows identification, to communicate to the winner his prize.
Kahoot! is a gamified social education service. The most common form of use, as in this case, is through test questions, but it also has room for discussion and debate. The goal is to learn by having fun.
Players can join the game from this link or by applying pin 08131979 on the main entrance of the Kahoot website. You do not need to be an ALARVA member to participate, but only members have the option to compete for all five prizes.
As soon as you answer, you'll know if you've done it correctly, in which case you earn points. At the end of the match, the contestant's position and the winners' podium are displayed at the time the contest was held.
