Game On Extra Time

GOET logoGOET – Game On Extra Time (Oct 2008-Sep 2010)

The work from the GOET project was undertaken to support people with learning disabilities in getting and keeping a job by helping them to learn more independent living skills that help them in their working day. It improved the way these subjects were taught, and via games-based learning, making them more interesting and enjoyable. An accessible approach to vocational skills training was created by adapting and developing a range of games for computers and mobile phones to make learning interactive and fun. The focus was on developing vocational skills like preparation for working life, dealing with every day situations at work, money management and travelling independently. A promotional video for the project is available here.
