Digital Skills for Using Board Games as a Tool in Education

Main Scope

The course aims to provide enough theoretical background and practical experience to the participants, so that they will have the basic knowledge needed in order to understand how to integrate the use of board games in education, including the methods to implement them in a digital format, allowing distance learning through on-line board gaming.


The course contains a brief introduction on board game mechanics and the concepts of game design, and then moves on to lecture on the practical use of board games in education and their use as a tool in combating early school dropout. Finally, the participants will be presented with at least two third-party online board game platforms they can add to their arsenal, and practice creating and uploading the basic elements of a board game for online use.
