The experimenting community
This is the researcher´s final report
on the EU-project MediaPLAYINGcommunities, that took place during a two year period in 2007-2009. It was placed under the Transversal Programme as part of the Lifelong Learning Programme. The project aimed at making communities centred around kindergartens and pre-school environments. These communities centred on using digital media in a media playing way to communicate and produce. The inspiration was how children played with media and the idea was to make this inspiration a common way for all in the community.
