Thursday March 19th 13:30 to 17:30
Facilitated by Derek Robertson, Learning and Teaching Scotland
How can Guitar Hero be used to stimulate creative writing?
How can Nintendogs help primary school children learn maths, ICT skills, animation, design and technology?
Can Endless Ocean save the world?
Is Little Big Planet the ultimate virtual learning environment?
These questions and more are tackled in this highly interactive session for practitioners and delegates interested in learning about real initiatives where games are being used to enrich, enhance and in some cases perhaps even transform the educational experience of learners.
Award winning exemplars from across the UK and further afield will be presented, supported with the latest research data followed by discussions and lively debate.
Professor Maja Pivec, University of Applied Sciences - FH Joanneum, Graz, Austria
