Join us for the Digital Playgrounds webinar with Sherri Hope Culver!

We’re back with a new event! A webinar called “Digital Playgrounds // Young Gamers and Critical Thinking” with Sherii Hope Culver will be live at 7pm CEST (1pm EST) on April 19th.

When adults look at teenagers playing video games, they often see a pleasant (but also ultimately meaningless) way of spending free time. What they might miss is the fact that for many young people games have become the most important part of their media ecosystem – and a space in which they learn critical thinking and other skills associated with media literacy. Such skills will prove crucial in their future – they will allow them to handle the surplus provided by the media, separate valuable information from fake news, and make informed choices of their own. All thanks to spending long hours playing video games.
