Knowledge Transfer Partnership with the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre
G-LEARN is the project name for our Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre (MKCDC). MKCDC is an educational organisation that develops urban geography learning materials and activities for schools and universities. The objective of G-LEARN is to design and develop an electronic resource to assist with school-level Key Stage 3 Human Geography learning and teaching. The project aims to use the case study of Milton Keynes to develop learning resources for use in schools nationally. The G-LEARN application is based around the decisions made during urban planning and draws on the educational and archive resources of MKCDC to illustrate the complexities and tradeoffs which urban policy makers and planners have to reconcile.
