Playing games is more than just an entertaining pastime.
To play a game means to enter a new world that might tell a relevant story or face a set of problems that trains your skills and makes you get better not only at the game but also at solving problems in general.
Games can be big and complex systems that can be studied and manipulated by players and by that lead to a deepened understanding of these systems that would be hard to achieve without playing with this system. Games are social, communicative and ask for creative solutions to hard problems.
They make you cooperate and create discussions and solutions while at the same time enabling you to take part in a discourse with digital media. Using games you can learn mathematics, physics, or languages. You can find out about historical contexts, how finances work or the basics of art or game design.
Our material makes you reflect on what is happening in a game, helps you understand the concepts and rules behind a game setting and connects what you do in a game with real-life events and facts. You will be able to practice languages, interact with digital media and understand games as a medium in general. Every material comes with recommendations for age groups, subjects, topics, and skill sets you will train using them. We will show where this knowledge and these skills fit into training plans and curricula and help you develop a skill set around a game that is always in connection with real-world applications.
