Detailed Description

Pervasive Gaming for Language Learning is a project in collaboration with the Coventry University’s Languages Centre, aiming to explore pervasive approaches to learning and exploit gamification techniques in contextualising language learning in a more active and engaging way. Italian is used as a case study. The Imparapp game was designed based on a holistic and modular design approach developed by Dr. Sylvester Arnab and implemented using the ‘Taleblazer’ authoring tool from the MIT. The 4-part game has also been developed by our own students – Tyrone Bellamy-Wood (Game designer and programmer) and Gaetan van Leuwen (Creative Writer)
