The Disruptive Media Learning Lab (DMLL), Coventry University hosted the BEACONING project kick off meeting from 19-20th January as described in my previous post, where 26 attendees representing 15 partners from 9 different countries came together for the first time to define a shared vision for the project over the next three years. The day and a half meeting covered many topics all delivered in a unique and interactive way to pave the way this ground breaking project set to change mind-sets and create new models and practices of teaching and learning.
The video is a quick overview of the kick off day. It was a shame that we didnt get to video all partners. The official project video is to come!
BEACONING stands for ‘Breaking Educational Barriers with Contextualised, Pervasive and Gameful Learning’ and will be focusing on ‘anytime anywhere’ learning by gamified techniques and technologies, framed under the Problem-Based Learning approach. The project is co-funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 687676.
The official website will be up and running soon – http://beaconing.eu
