We recently completed the final pilot of the European Union funded education project ARGuing for Multilingual Motivation in Web 2.0 http://www.arg-education.eu. This project has built an ARG to promote language learning in secondary school students called the, 'The Tower of Babel'.

I have placed a video on Classroom 2.0 that includes some statistics and comments from teachers. http://www.classroom20.com/xn/detail/649749:Video:340524

We will be presenting academic papers on the project at the forthcoming European Association for Games in Education conference in October, Graz, Austria and will be placing documentation on the project website as well.

I keep sending emails to get involved but nothing ever comes back to me. I'm really interested in this aspect of education. I'm eager to see your papers and data!

I am sorry you have not had a response. Unfortunately emails from the website are not coming directly to me, in future please write to me at joel.josephson [AT} kindersite {DOT] org . I would also be happy to have a Skype with you if it would help. Skype Account: acerview54

The project team spent 2 years on this project and ran 3 sets of pilots. We understand pretty well what went right/wrong and may be able to help other projects.
