Life Beyond the Grant: Creative Dissemination Strategies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past decade, the authors have collaborated on the development of location-based augmented reality games for use in formal and informal contexts. As their current grant is winding down, they have sought innovative ways to support expansion to new sites. To work toward that goal, they jointly offered an eight-week webinar series which included a mix of conceptual discussions, annotated examples of successful game projects, and hands-on practice with the game development tools. In this presentation, the structure of the webinar series and samples of the ancillary support materials will be shared, along with program evaluation data reflecting critical factors which contributed to successful replication at some sites, and delineation of obstacles which made transfer of innovative game-based tools to other sites difficult.
