About this project

It aims to:

1. Define ‘games’ and assess their level and use in schools in Europe
2. Analyse the use of video games as a educational tool, drawing upon existing research
3. Scope a ‘critical video games education’, including identifying how to build up young people’s key competence of digital literacy (more critical and responsible in their video games use)
4. Build up a European community of teachers to share and disseminate their projects and experiences
