Pilot Grants for Developing an Open-Licensed Historical Game

In Fall 2018, Affordable Learning Georgia started a new Pilot Grants For Developing an Open‐Licensed Historical Game project. This invited pilot project is intended to:

  • Explore and expand new and affordable approaches to Historical Game Creation and Implementation, including the adoption, adaptation and creation of Open Educational Resources (OER), the adoption of significant proportion of materials available from the Digital Library of Georgia and/or the Digital Public Library of America, and the use of other no‐cost and low‐cost digital materials.
  • Provide support and time to faculty, librarians, instructional designers, and their institutions to implement these approaches.
  • Lower the cost of college for student and contribute to their retention, progression, and graduation.

This project includes assistance and advice from the Reacting Consortium and the University of Georgia’s Reacting to the Past program. Grant recipients will attend the Third Annual Reacting Consortium Winter Conference at University of Georgia on January 18-19, 2019.
