Why Jam Today?
JamToday supports the creation, implementation and deployment of educational games by creating methods and tools and by providing a central learning hub for participating organisations that will ensure that stakeholders maintain a balanced understanding of the main issues, and the implementation hurdles that need to be overcome.
JamToday also provides game jam tools, self-assessment modules, expert advice and the exchange of best practice.
Through these activities JamToday aims to provide a bridge between different sectors to guarantee the successful uptake of the next generation of educational games across Europe. And we can offer you the necessary structure, guidance, tools and support to get involved.
Come and join in!
Playing games comes naturally to us from the earliest age.
We learn to make friends, to co-operate and to find our borders by playing with one another, and as we grow older our quest for understanding continues.
All over Europe young people are playing computer games regularly and picking up new skills and knowledge informally.
But if Europe is to compete more effectively, our citizens must achieve greater digital competences and our learning environments must incorporate technology in more useful and meaningful ways.
Changing the way games are perceived and used in learning context is now not a game, but a necessity.
Students need to be able not only to play games but also to make them. We need to be able to both read and write.
To do this, the Jam Today network is bringing together the different people who are involved the process of designing and deploying game-based approaches to learning.
And we offer the necessary information, expert guidance, tools and support for you to get involved in a practical manner.
To make this work, we need people from many different perspectives and we invite you to join us as a member, a participant, an organiser, a supporter or a sponsor.
So come along, join in, and play the game.
