Technology enhanced learning
We explore how social and digital media influences learning outcomes across age groups. We look at how people and society engage with multimedia systems and the impact of digital on how we interact and communicate. Our work looks at the role of Artificial Intelligence in apps, serious gaming and web-based learning.
Case study: Teaching new skills through gaming
Investigate Tudors is a learning resource designed to teach students note-taking skills. It puts the player in the position of a spy at Hampton Court in Tudor times, where they need to take notes and summarise what they see and hear efficiently in order to progress. Developed through student led design in collaboration with our Academic Skills team, the game uses game based learning principles to help students develop the necessary study skills.
