EdTech: Playful learning

Average rating is 3.7 out of 5    
Module description.

Playful learning refers to the use of games, toys and other elements of play to support learning.

It can be found in all sectors of education and has been with us ever since we moved away from Victorian methods of keeping quiet and copying from the chalkboard.

This module looks at ways we can adopt not just games themselves, but the underpinning notions that make games and play enjoyable and engaging in order to create effective learning opportunities that motivate learners to succeed.

This is an Leading Module
