Abstract

Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) offer huge potential in Further and Higher education. However, at Primary school level, the use of such environments is quite limited. Northern Ireland's primary schools have access to a VLE namely LearningNI. However its adoption and potential may need to be readdressed. This paper presents an enhanced learning environment called AmbiLearn, focusing on a generic game module, specifically designed for primary school children to aid in the constant assessment for learning activities that happen in daily classroom learning. An experimental design for testing AmbiLearn has been designed and is currently in progress to assess its educational potential.
