Some of the COVUNI team headed to Malaysia for the CreativeCulture project to work with the teachers based in the rural schools in the remote part of Malaysia.
During our visit we worked with the teachers to go through the design thinking process and the teachers co-created game based learning activities which were then tested with the pupils. Both the teachers and pupils demonstrated a high level of engagement throughout our time with them and the students were captivated by the interactive nature of the activities created by the teachers. The Malaysian teachers, pupils and community embraced the opportunity and would benefit from further engagement.
Therefore, Coventry aims to use the teachers and pupils in Malaysia as stakeholders for the BEACONING project with the teachers involved in the lesson design and using the geo-location with the beacons.
