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.

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 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.
