Using a community- centred pedagogical model to build social resilience through Play

<!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Communities today are now facing different challenging conditions around the world, forcing them to embrace social resilience in order to collectively cope with or respond to external pressures and interruptions. We now need to adopt and adapt to a new normal way of life, learning from the experiences of many indigenous communities who have emerged as champions of social resilience, as these communities have acclimatized to many circumstances affecting their ways of life, such as climate change.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Learning from indigenous communities is becoming increasingly important, as they are capable of providing insight on different issues that affect us. In recognition of the invaluable wealth of knowledge belonging to indigenous communities that we can learn from, the Institute of Social Informatics and Technological Innovations (ISITI), has spent over twenty years building a close, working relationship with these communities.

Creative Play for Learning at Coventry University on 8 October 2018

<!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>The event touched on creativity and co-creativity through the medium of play and games and the design process of such activities. Game and play design should tap into our own experiences to enable a more holistic approach for designing new learning activities for our learners. And learners can have a deeper and a more collaborative learning experience through the process of creating and co-creating. Case studies presented include the management of the co-creative process and evaluation at the Université Côte d’Azur (keynote from Professor Margarida Romero) and the engagement with teachers and learners at rural schools in Malaysia via the Newton-Funded CreativeCulture project. The event also had optional hands-on workshops on playful activities.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph -->
