Learning 2.0

April 23, 2008: Videogames as educational tools: Combining leisure and education (Héctor del Castillo, PhD; Ana B. García-Varela, PhD)

Héctor del Castillo and Ana B. García-Varela talked about videogames. Can one combine leisure and education with them?

The Master académique Learning and Development in Multilingual and Multicultural Contexts (MA multi-LEARN) and the Bachelor en Sciences de l’Education would like to invite you to a public lecture about the educational value of videogames.

Videogames are often criticized by psychologists and representatives of educational sciences.

  • But what if it was in fact possible to integrate them in our classroom activities?
  • Could we combine learning and fun with the aid of this medium?

We will explore and discuss how to establish bridges between different educational settings, between classrooms and families. Let us learn, as communities of practice, by using videogames as tools that facilitate the construction of knowledge!

The lecture will take place on Campus Walferdange in Room Vygotsky on Wednesday, 23 April 2008, at 5:30 p.m.
