Date & Time: Wednesday, 4 November, 7:00pm
In this modern world, children are growing up with many powerful technological tools right at their fingertips, one such tool being digital games.
Join Malta Café Scientifique on 4th November 2020 for a fascinating panel discussion on the power digital games can have as a learning tool in the classroom.
A study by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe found that 54% of Europeans aged 6-64 years played digital games, with the most popular age group being those aged 11-14 years (84%). Considering this, it has become increasingly more important to try and use digital games as a positive educational resource.
They have the potential to support the acquisition and understanding of knowledge, experimentation, creativity, problem-solving, empathy, decision making skills and current real world issues.
