Course Description

No, today’s board games have little to share with the old “classics” such as Monopoly, Risk, or Trivial Pursuit.

Following a renaissance in gaming since the ‘90s, “modern” board games—such as Pandemic, Dominion, or The Settlers of Catan—have promoted an innovative affordable option for engaging social interaction for people of all ages, and are more popular now than ever before.

Being cheap and easily available, they also afford an effective way to develop vital learning skills in young and older learners for those teachers who are willing to venture into this unexplored landscape.

Are you ready to take on the challenge?

This course will help you introduce board games in your classes as a novel teaching tool to engage your learners and promote their social and cognitive growth, as well as to raise pupil’s interest in curricular content.

Depending on the selected game and the focus of the classroom activity, there are tons of lessons your pupils can learn by playing in the classroom.

While board games may not represent the preferential route to teaching every curricular subject, they are extremely successful to promote the acquisition of key competencies for lifelong learning, such as:

- Ethical capacities: rule-following, learning to lose, respect;
- Soft skills: sharing and openness, storytelling, just competing;
- The popular “4 Cs”: communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking;
- Cognitive skills: self-regulation, working memory, cognitive flexibility, inhibitory control, problem solving, risk assessment, autonomous decision-making, metacognition, learning to learn.

Board games are also a successful active learning paradigm to make pupils practice in curricular subjects such as maths, languages, or science. Finally, educational board games are also suitable to familiarize learners with more unusual subjects such as environmental sustainability and the nature of European Institutions.

As a participant in the course, you will learn how to plan and conduct board game learning activities to train your learners in the social and cognitive skills that are more relevant to your subject. You will learn how to design an effective gaming session, how to explain the game and the rules, how to make your pupils play, and how to debrief the gaming experience.

The course proposes a hands-on and collegial approach. We will play a wide variety of titles of the last decade (from the simplest to some more complex) to help you acquire the practical understanding necessary to re-propose that or other games in your classroom. After each session, we will also discuss what skills and competencies the game may scaffold in different age groups (6-13-year-olds), considering the different motivations and needs of primary and secondary school students.

What are you still waiting for? By the end of the course, you will be ready to surprise your students with an engaging activity and to exploit a new active learning paradigm to promote their ethical, social, and cognitive skills.
