Time: 9:00 - 12:00
For: teachers and anyone interested in the topic of using video games in schools
We don't have to play heroes in games. With this philosophy in mind, educational video game projects are created that put their players at the centre of historical events, contemporary world problems or in the roles of ordinary people facing difficult life situations. Educational game formats are supported by engaging narratives, allowing players to have an immersive experience that enhances the educational and awareness-raising goals of these games.
In the programme, we will present the game studios Charles Games (CZ) and Impact Games (SK), the international project GaminGEE by Queer Geography (CZ) and, last but not least, the educational game Dreamlike by a student of New Media at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University.
Time: 12:30 - 13:10
