As part of REVEAL, project partners developed an innovative approach for using Educational Environmental Narrative (EEN) games in the classroom. Originally developed and trialled with partners at UTC Sheffield, this video shows the final product being used with pupils at Mercia School in Sheffield. The approach is broadly based on the ideas behind “Anchored Instruction” and inspired by the teaching practice of the late Tim Rylands.
