STUDENT WORKSHOPS ON HEALTHY GAMING
The Institute of Games teaches students how to moderate their gaming and identify the risks associated with video games. We aim to turn passive consumers of technology into active creators.
THE STUDENT WORKSHOPS
The Institute of Games can come to your school to deliver the following workshops:
Moderate your gaming. Find your balance!
In this workshop we co-design a set of strategies on how to moderate gaming and keep gaming in balance with all other responsibilities in life, such as school, family and hobbies. Students feel empowered to better manage their time.
We focus on moderation, empathy and resilience
Design a game in an hour
By implementing game design principles we explore why games are so addictive and how we can be better moderate gaming. At the same time we discuss opportunities and pathways in the gaming industry and how to pursue these.
This workshop is great fun mixing an introduction to game design with wellbeing messages.
All workshops are:
We don’t talk at students. We engage them in conversations and co-design solutions to the problems they are dealing with.
For primary & secondary schools
We believe prevention and education should start from as soon as children start playing video games. We’ve designed different approaches depending on the age of the children.
Tailored to your needs
We will always discuss any specific needs for your school or class. Our instructors are highly flexible and will work with your teachers to deliver a session tailored to your needs.
All Institute of Games workshops include:
- Handouts for students,
- Factsheets to give out to parents or put in the school newsletter
- The parents’ workbook for gaming for wellbeing staff.
