I didn’t get to the BETT Awards this year (I must have been to loud last year?). But I was delighted to hear that our colleagues at the SQA along with their industry partner ‘Learn TPM Ltd’ picked up one of the 2011 awards.
The award was for ICT Education Partnership for the work that they have done on Games Based Assessment Products for Skills for Work.
The judges comments were:
“The quality of entries this year has been consistently high, highlighting the tremendous vision of the ICT industry and its commitment to education. The BETT Awards judgements were achieved through lengthy analysis and detailed discussions.”
“The judges thought this was a clear winner because of its partnership working in achieving creative e-learning solutions. The submission showed collaboration in an exciting environment. They were impressed to see a Qualifications Authority treating gaming seriously.”
“The judges felt that this partnership and the resources they Create, bring course-assessment and learning into the twenty-first century.”
Well done SQA and Learn TPM Ltd – If your interested in the work that we are doing on Games Based Learning in Assessment in Scotland. You can find further details on the SQA Game Space Website.
