Games in Schools survey - prize draw

Win X-box 360 Elites and a pack of child-friendly games by filling in our survey!

Adventure games, role plays, arcade, strategy games, simulations, driving games, puzzles, brain gym … We hear more and more about computer games and they are getting more and more sophisticated, but what is their place in school? Are they useful or dangerous? Opinions among teachers seem to be divided with some enthusiastic teachers using them effectively, some sceptical and some hostile. What is your opinion?

Online survey in English, French, German, Spanish, Danish and Estonian:

Following on from the successful eMAPPS.com project showing the potential of some types of game in schools, European Schoolnet is undertaking this major study for the Interactive Software Federation of Europe on the use of games in schools in Europe: video games, computer games, online games that run on consoles, computers, handhelds or mobile phones.

If you teach or work with teachers please spend a few minutes completing this questionnaire – whether or not you use computer games – to help us understand better the place of games in teaching and learning. Completing the questionnaire also gives you the opportunity to join a community of practice we are setting up for European teachers using games.
