I’ve been a bit lax about posting for the last couple of months, but just wanted to take this opportunity to wish everyone all the best for the festive season and the year ahead, and to talk briefly about two EU games projects that I’m involved in and have just launched or are just about to launch.
- Game-based learning for older adults (gambaloa) is a two-year lifelong learning partnership, aiming to build a network to share practice and research in the field. The kick-off meeting took place in Manchester at the start of the week and I’m still recovering. An embryonic web site is available at https://gambaloa.wordpress.com/.
- Making games in collaboration for learning (MAGICAL) is a 28-month multilateral project, which is due to launch in January, and aims to develop a curriculum for teachers using games in their own practice. As well as the UK, there are partners in Belgium, Italy, Finland and Greece. The web site and further details about the project will be available in the new year, so watch this space.
