Who we are and why to participate in this event.
CSP is a reasearch organization in Turin and we are partner of JamToday. Together with the support of our project partners in Europe and in Italy and with he support of other local actors and sponsors we are organizing the first game jam for serious game in Italy. Game Jams have been organised for several years around the world and are a powerful instrument to stimulate innovation in the creation, development and deployment of educational games. They offer the possibility to develop an idea into a potentially innovative solution around specific themes while at the same time offering the opportunity to explore the process of development (e.g. programming, iterative design, narrative exploration or artistic expression).
The Turin JamToday is a Game Jam for developing a serious games for learning in around 48 hours.
The 2014 edition of JamToday is spreading around Europe
What is JamToday?
JamToday supports the creation, implementation and deployment of educational games by creating methods and tools and by providing a central learning hub for participating organisations that will ensure that stakeholders maintain a balanced understanding of the main issues, and the implementation hurdles that need to be overcome.
JamToday also provides game jam tools, self-assessment modules, expert advice and the exchange of best practice.
Through these activities JamToday aims to provide a bridge between different sectors to guarantee the successful uptake of the next generation of educational games across Europe. And we can offer you the necessary structure, guidance, tools and support to get involved.
