|Digital dialogue games for inclusive and personalised learning
This technology-focused collaboration project for the e-learning strand of the JISC Capital Programme will take a ‘state-of-the-art’ collaboration and social-software tool (InterLoc) and its related learning activities (digital dialogue games) from the current pilot phase of development to integrated exemplary implementations and embedding in 5 HE institutions. The project is led by LTRI with partners at Exeter, OU, Queen Mary (University of London) and Teesside. These institutions all have a particular focus on widening participation, flexible delivery and lifelong learning. The project will run for 28 months from September 2006 to January 2009 and will lead to more widespread dissemination of the approach within the UK HE community by the end of the project.
The InterLoc tool and digital dialogue game approach is particularly suited to addressing problems of widening participation and providing engaging learning experiences throughout the lifelong learning cycle in formal, semi-formal and informal settings. Although the nature of the dialogue games already allows them to support personalised learning, the current InterLoc tool will be adapted to produce an advanced version that is more personalised and integrated, leading to a more pervasive gaming approach.
