BCDS's Open Co-creation project wins grant


The IIiA's BCDS research group has won a grant for Open Co-creation, an R&D project which supports the collaborative creation of open, IT-based educational resources. The new project will be sponsored by the Spanish Ministry for Economy and Competitiveness (grant reference TIN2014-53082-R) and will run for three years. The project, led by BCDS's co-director Dr Ramon Fabregat, brings together computer scientists, educationalists and psychologists from the University of Girona,  the University of Piraeus Research Center, Greece,  Athabasca University, Canada and Ontario College of Art and Design, Canada. These researchers form the core of a network which promotes learning enhanced by IT with an emphasis on inclusiveness and on addressing the specific needs of each individual student.
