the FutureLab/EA project ‘Teaching with Games’ is coming to an end and their final report is doing the rounds, although I see it is not yet up on their website. If you are interested let me know and I can pass on a copy.
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.’
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 …..
