Learning designs

Every partner had to create two learning designs within the project. Due to restrictions and references the list of learning designs is very diverse. You can find classical computer games on the list, as well as gamified learning tools, paper games, role-playing tools and basic exercises in game design.
The following blogposts are going to present the learning designs done by the partners. Even though we gave guidelines to follow, you can easily realise in the following that the designs differ in length, depth and approach. As we wanted to show how complex and diverse the topic of game based learning can be, we did not unify the designs, but kept them the way they were done by the partners. This also demonstrates how different the understanding of working with games and creating learning designs was in our project alone.
The partners created the following designs:
VUC: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes VR & Active Floor
BFI: Connect four & The Reactor Game
Platon: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes PC & Escape Room
CityLit: ACT ESOL & Lateral Thinking Game
Fønix: Kahoot! & The Frostrune

We tried to find a structure of learning designs specific for game based learning that also considers the facts and requirements of the games themselves. Some of the partners elaborated some of the parts (or even the whole design) more than others. What is the minimum to be required and what is the maximum content for such a design is still left to be decided, it is probably also dependent on the view of the teachers themselves. Our learning designs contain the following aspects:
● Game facts
● Game description
● Target group & Setting
● Checklist
● Project outline
● How to embed
● Use in class
● Student Experience
● Testimonials & Quotes
