Teaching and video games
Teaching and video games

In my experience as a high school teacher, I noticed there is some reluctance on using game as a powerful educational weapon. It seems that the generation gap that exists between teacher and student is an unbridgeable abyss which will never allow these two worlds to be connected.

From No Wand Studios, as part of this new emerging industry, we want to give some guidance to teachers who are interested in including these tools in their classrooms. The text will be centered on the teaching of social sciences (SS CC from now), but we will be happy to propose alternatives to other subjects. Do not hesitate to contact (hi@nowandstudios.com) and see which formula is best suited to your needs.

There is a term that every day is more often used, even though some people might find it somewhat dissonant: we speak of the “serious games”.

For those who do not yet know what we mean, serious games include that part of video games whose main purpose isn’t to entertain their users (which doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t accomplish it). Rather, its uses can be as varied as education, simulations and even advertising.
