WHY RUN A CAMP FOCUSED ON BOARD GAMES?
In today’s tech-obsessed, time-crunched society, we are learning the importance of balancing hard skills like writing, mathematics and web design with soft skills like effective communication, teamwork, and decision-making. During our camp, we will be using the inherently engaging “fun-factor” of board games to capture the interest of our participants. Then, we will use the various objectives and mechanics in the games we showcase as a platform to foster the development of social intelligence, complex critical thinking and creative problem solving. You can find out more about non-traditional learning pedagogies by speaking with one of our teachers. See above for contact information.
You can also find out more about how contemporary table-top games have the potential to assist educators by watching Tom Vasel,(former-teacher-now-game-guru) share his thoughts on using games in the classroom here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYVhsumOn0s
