“Fun and Games” was established in 2000, for anybody looking for ideas, games and things to do for children, youth, parties and events. The site originally just specialised in the traditional and contemporary group or playground games played by children, youth and adults, but has broadened to include interesting uses of technology in games. The old site is still in the process of being transferred as each game and activity (and there were hundreds of them) needs to be written as an individual blog post to take advantage of the categorisation and tagging for ease searching.
Kit has worked with youth in both voluntary and paid sectors for over 30 years (he tells his son he’s 150 🙂 ), starting when he was 15 and helping out with a summer scheme at a local church who were looking for help. As his parents put it, he was never seen again… at least that summer. Much of his youth work has been voluntary and has included running children’s projects at university, and running for many years the youth group at his home church.
Kit now splits his time between mainly looking after his own family and working as a Learning Technology Fellow at the for the UCL Institute of Education. He’s also a Learning Technology consultant () and also been known to do professional photography ().
Jan 2016 – A major site crash forced the old site down. Games and activities held on the original collection are still in the process of being uploaded.
