The Serious Sports project aims to develop a digital sports game and reusable framework that will offer sports/fitness coaches the opportunity to simulate the physical conditioning, training content and structure in different (training) seasons for a European-wide sparring sport.
The project will seek to provide resources and self-assessment techniques as part of this digital sports game to support coaches, vocational teachers and others involved in sports through game based learning and reinforcement techniques.
The project also intends to research, enhance and promote the use of game based learning in all areas of sport and support the recognition and evaluation of social, communication and organizational skills acquired in all possible learning scenarios.
The project game is currently being trialled in Ireland, the UK, Austria, Finland and Hungary. The project will finish in November 2013.
