Summary on Grant Application Form
In the UK there is a great deal of interest in the use of narrative and computer games-based technology in the development of intuitive, motivating and engaging learning systems. Meanwhile, in China there is an upsurge in research involving computer games technology partly sustained by the explosive take-off of the computer games industry there. The projected visit would allow a group of investigators who are all heavily involved in this area - the majority already running an EPSRC-funded network DAPPPLE in this area - to visit the leading research centres in this field in China. The group would run at least one workshop while there, and meet contacts from the British Council Dare to be Digitial programme in May 2005 with a view to establishing later research projects in this field. An output will be a report outlining the state-of-the-art in this research in the main Chinese centres which will benefit other Uk research groups.
