Ideas that Matter: Helen Keegan describes a project she facilitated with her university class, using elements of alternative reality gaming to create a mysterious scenario that brought curiosity back into their learning. She wants students to go beyond curriculum and the path set in front of them, believing that we cannot teach students to be curious but we can put opportunities to be curious in front of them to facilitate their curiosity and creativity. Helen Keegan is Senior Lecturer in Interactive Media and Social Technologies at the University of Salford, MediaCity UK. Her expertise lies in curriculum innovation and the development of new pedagogies, focusing on creativity and interdisciplinariy. A recognized international speaker, her research focuses on digital culture, digital identity and literacy, and the interplay between formal and informal learning.
