Game changer is a 7 days project in Copenhagen from March 20 to March 26 2023. In this project we mix people who are or want to be involved in games with those who use games for learning (GBL). Together we will join workshops and executions all in the theme of game based learning - GBL, we will arrange courses in art, programming, music and history and culture. We use informal and informal learning in our workshops that will be hands-on where we share and discuss GBL, you do not need to have an expertise in it! We will have a nice time together and make new connections and friendships among people in games or education. In our project we will understand games better by playing them and discussing them. The EU will pay for your stay, transportation and green meals (from breakfast to dinner) while in the event. Participating is free!
Project Game changer is an EU project organised by The Association Green Game Learning which aims to bring together people who make games, people working within or interested in Game Based Learning.
