The Scottish Learning Festival that takes place in Glasgow on the 24th & 25th September has quite a lot of games based learning work in the programme. This link will give you details of what's going on:http://ltsblogs.org.uk/consolarium/2008/08/15/games-based-learning-at-slf-08/
We have also taken the chance to build in a game zone challenge this year. We have began two competitions that are structured around Glow, our national schools intranet. We are using:Sonic and Mario at the Olympicshttp://ltsblogs.org.uk/consolarium/2008/08/15/scottish-schools-guitar-hero-challenge-at-slf-08/Guitar Herohttp://ltsblogs.org.uk/consolarium/2008/08/15/turn-it-up-to-eleven-at-slf-08-with-the-guitar-hero-challenge/
We also aim to have a Dr Kawashima (how fast can you do your sums) challenge for teachers as well as a Rockband 'pass the mic' type finale!
Please do try and get there and if you have tried anything like this at a national education conference then please do let me know how you got on.
