A slightly overdue mention of a great resource and group in London who are focussed around educational game development and use. Set up by Kirsten Campbell-Hughes in 2011, with Martha Henson joining her in 2012 after working on some of the fabulous games in the Wellcome Collection (amongst other great things), edugameshub is an informal blog collecting together some great posts from designers, developers and teachers around educational games. They also run #LEGup gatherings in London for educational game developers and designers, for those in or visiting the area.
I was invited to write a blog post for the hub last month around the use of games in adult (/higher) education, which can be seen here:
..but the rest of the site (and the meetups) are well worth checking out while you’re there.
