It’s been a couple of months since our last update, but we figured everyone had enough to digest over Dec/Jan. We hope you all managed to have a good rest, and a chance to relax and play, over the festive period.
The lockdown continues for most of us, of course, but in November we blew away isolation with a great online PlayDay: see our report of the Trials and Tribulations of Playing Online.
Many events, Playful Learning included, are waiting to see how the world is looking later this year, but there are two conferences you might be interested in submitting a paper to, or joining:
- 23-25 June: iGBL2021 is the Irish Games Based Learning conference, normally hosted in Ireland by Patrick Felicia; but this year – as last – it will be entirely online. 23-25th June, see the iGBL site. [note: Call for Papers closes Feb 5th!]
- 23-24 Sept: ECGBL (the European Conference on Games Based Learning) which shifted online last October, is returning to Brighton this year with the promise of a blended approach. See details and call for papers at https://www.academic-conferences.org/conferences/ecgbl/
