On 19-20th January, the Disruptive Media Learning Lab (DMLL), Coventry University hosted the BEACONING project kick off meeting. Twenty-six attendees representing fifteen partners from nine different countries came together for the first time to define a shared vision for the project over the next three years.
The BEACONING project will exploit relevant techniques and technologies and innovate the way learning is facilitated. By using a gamified approach, we aim to inject the power of play that will encapsulate formal, informal, non-formal and social learning experiences within a contextualised narrative. This opens up opportunities for us to redefine and reconstruct learning in a hybrid learning space.
