    they are also holding a more general event in early Nov.

    ‘The report from the Teaching with Games project, and related surveys, are online at:

    http://www.futurelab.org.uk/research/teachingwithgames/findings.htm

    Abstract: the Teaching with Games project was a one-year study designed to offer a broad overview of teachers’ and students’ use of and attitudes towards commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computer games in schools. It aimed to identify the factors that would impact the use of these entertainment games in school and describe the processes by which teachers plan and implement games-based learning in existing curricular contexts. Finally, it aimed to provide recommendations for future games-based learning approaches in schools for teachers, developers and policy makers.’

    Anyone who is into this stuff (e.g. Aphra!) might consider submitting a paper to this:

    http://www.msadgd07.net

    It’s a Microsoft Academic/Research conference on games in education and it takes place on a cruise liner off Florida! Authors of accepted papers get all expenses paid e.g. flights to Orlando etc etc …..

    Ooops … just realised this has already been posted as a news item …
