GameJams – teaching mathematics via games in Spain, Tunisia and Canada this spring

During this spring,  several European Netowork of Living Lab (ENoLL) members across the world have been organising Game Jams in the context of the JamToday project. Using the game jam toolkit ENoLL members engaged with the world of Applied Game Jams and took up the challenge to teach mathematics via gamification!

Over the weekend of the 27th to the 29th of May JamToday Almería took place in Spain hosted by Guadalinfo. Girls Learning About Maths (GLAM) Games takes place in Ottawa, Canada hosted by 1125@Carlton and another is currently planned in Tunisia hosted by DigiArt Living Lab Tunis-Nabeul.

No One Left Behind supports these initiatives as we are using game jams to promote the use of #Pocket Code in education and help the kids at risk of social exclusion to engage more in class learning. 

ENoLL is the international federation of benchmarked Living Labs in Europe and worldwide. It provides co-creation, user engagement, test and experimentation facilities targeting innovation in many different domains such as energy, media, mobility, healthcare, agrifood, etc. As such, it is well placed to act as a platform for best practice exchange, learning and support, and Living Lab international project development.
