The project logo selection process was divided into two steps. First, each school chose the two best logos presented in that centre. Then, the eight selected logos were published in our TwinSpace and a vote was opened to choose the best one of them. All countries had the same number of votes and voting was carried out online to encourage the use of new technologies. The process was published in our TwinSpace.
At IES Playamar the members of the Art department included this activity as part of their lessons. All students at the school were invited to take part in this activity.
Students were registered in the TwinSpace of the project and received training on the use of the platform.
Students easily became familiar with the use of the platform. We observed a high degree of motivation among the students towards the idea of getting in touch with the students from the other schools involved in the project.
The Erasmus + Corner was created at Playamar High School school. We used 3D printing for the poster as well as QR codes to provide more information
EMSL Erasmus+ project visited several primary schools at Torremolinos
We visited the three primary schools related to our school to inform about our Erasmus + project. In each visit students of the project who had studied at these elementary schools were the ones explaining about the project. The dates of the visits were the following:

• February 8: Atenea Primary School
• February 12: Albaida Primary School

Learning how to create a board game to help kids learn about diversity
The Spanish team decided that their company in this Erasmus+ project would created a board game. After that, we agreed on an educational board game. Helping kids to learn about diversity and gender equality was the objetive.
In order to achieve this goal we contact “Cuéntame un juego” a local association for the promotion of board games.
During the first year of the project they have visited the school several times and provided us with specific training.
Publications about the project in the media
Working on the prototype of our board game
Crush is the name of the company we are creating at Playamar Secondary School as part of our Eramus+ project. Our company has a strong social component. One of its main objectives is to provide resources to schools, associations and families to work the acquisition of values such as tolerance, respect or acceptance of diversity.
One of the resources we offer is a board game called as our company “Crush”. In creating this game we have relied on advice from professionals from the world of board game as the association “Tell me a game”.
For the elaboration of the first prototype we have used a 3D printer
Here you can see some of the first designs for pieces for our board game.
In the photo you can see the result of the previous designs.
Early designs for the first prototype
Before having a definitive version of a board game it is necessary to test it. Not only did we design a first version of the pieces, but also the characters, game cards and board.
The twenty students who are part of the project have worked on this first prototype. In the images you can see some of the early designs created for the prototype.
