Sustainaville Case Study

Using Games Based Learning in a Primary School

Sustainaville games based learning product was delivered in an educational workshop * in Mellor Primary School, Stockport on 20th December 2010. The class was made up of a split year group aged between nine and eleven.

The workshop and learning approach proved a real success and achieved significant learning improvements – 67% improvement in subject understanding and between a 40% and 70% improvement in personal, learning and thinking skills. The children enjoyed the challenge of running a virtual town. They said that the workshop was fun and took away important messages about the need to look after people and the planet. They also came away with a sense of perspective - “It is harder than I thought to run a town.”

Please read the Sustainaville Case Study to discover more on learning outcomes and the thoughts of the pupils and staff.

I will take away… planning, working together, making the right decisions.
