Project Summary

Co-designing a game-based learning tool with young people with learning disabilities.

Game Jam employed a participatory design approach to identify opportunities for an interactive game-based learning (GBL) tool on internet and social media safety, and to co-design this with young people with learning disabilities. The project involved a series of five Experience Labs to co-design the GBL tool with the young people and Local Area Co-ordinators (LACs)/trainers along with several Mini Labs intended to support this, and was followed by an evaluation session with young people and LACs on their experience of taking part in the Experience Labs. The project, spanning five months, was carried out in partnership with the Midlothian Council and the University of the West of Scotland.
