Understanding Local Area Regeneration
Regen-IT requires six teams to take responsibility for the regeneration of neighbourhoods in a virtual community. They have to deal with the differing issues of crime, transport, health, community well being, poverty, unemployment, housing, and the environment.
Regen-IT learning simulation models the life of a borough with 5 neighbourhoods. Teams play the role of a Local Authority (People & Places), Housing Developer, Housing Association, Neighbourhood Managers and the LSP. Within the resource management game, the partnership need to regenerate the borough and also provide affordable housing. Feedback is given through the main menu, overall scores based on targets and public opinions, report screens and GIS maps.
