95 games submitted in Alice Game Jam

Pocket code was used to build 43 games during the competition

The Alice Game Jam took place during the international Computer Science Education Week between 7th and 13th of December 2015, and No One Left Behind project was an official partner of this event.

During the Alice Game Jam were submitted 95 games from countries such us Austria, England, Italy and Spain and 43 of them were built using Pocket Code. Following the rules competition, the pupils from SAFA San Luis and SAFA Úbeda schools submmited four games applied to mathematics.

The SAFA Foundation (Andalucía, Spain) is participating as pilot of the No One Left Behind project. This pilot targets students growing at risk of not reaching their full potential as they come from differentiated collectives.

The organizers of Alice Game Jam have selected a total of 9 finalists programs which includes the game designed by the students from SAFA San Luis school based on correct and incorrect statements.

Congratulations to the winners!

No One Left Behind was presented in #JamToday Fair BCN

The second edition of Jam Today Fair BCN was held in Barcelona (Spain) the last December. The event was hosted by the JamToday Network at the Citilab and ENTI. The event joined, game designers, policy and research specialists in video games under the topic Games and Learning. Through a number of interactive workshops the event offered practical sessions about applied games design and game-based learning, transfer and evaluation methodologies, and concrete examples of applied games and games developed.

In this context Yolanda Ursa from INMARK participated in the 2015-12-01 16.15.44seminar on game-design for applied games: case studies and best practices, to present No One Left Behind and to explain the great potential of Pocket Code for educational systems.

Jam Today Fair BCN was a great opportunity for our project to share experience on gamification with a large community of applied games.
