Press release: Futurelab’s ‘Call for ideas’ on learning with games is now open

Date: 5 September – 8 October 2009

Education innovator Futurelab is calling for new ideas on learning with games. More specifically, they are seeking ideas that fit two themes:

‘Meaningful Games’ – Ideas for games that enable learners to engage with important issues such as learning, democracy, the environment and sustainability.

Mobile Games – Ideas for games that are developed for use while learners are on the move or interacting with the places, objects or people around them.

Futurelab aims to develop the best idea further so that it can be showcased in a way that lets others try it out or that helps to prepare it for a larger stage of development. Ideas are sought from anyone in the UK and, if selected by an expert panel, Futurelab will either help you to develop the idea or will help you to find funding via our network.
