computer game Workshop

“Man only plays where he is fully man, and he is only fully man where he plays.” – Friedrich Schiller

Playing is acting free of necessity and duty, and in this sense offers training in strategy, trial action, and a special experience of freedom, the latter of which constitutes the value of playing. Many people would say for sure that gaming is a basic need for them. In a world increasingly characterized by digitalization, the play behavior of many children is changing. With this development towards the digital, we at the IGS don’t want our students to miss out. For this reason we are offering a computer game group this school year. Here, the students’ interests are noted, and students are supported pedagogically with the aim of promoting the skills they need to work in a team and develop strategies. I am really looking forward to this. The computer game group is aimed at pupils in grades 6, 7 and 8 and takes place every second Friday from 2.40 p.m. to 4.15 p.m.
