Mission time

Two years

To mobilize students’ interest and engagement in school activities is one of the main challenges that all teachers share irrespective of country, education level, and the subject they teach.

We address this challenge by promoting teaching based on computer games as well as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality applications. They have the potential to facilitate the learning process in a way that respects the students’ cognitive, social, and cultural backgrounds while addressing the curriculum standards that they need to attain.

Our team develops the pedagogy of play and at the same time meaningful learning using the affordances of digital games and VR/AR applications across the school curriculum of primary, secondary and upper secondary schools.
