Games at school
There is a gradually growing awareness of the importance games have as an educational tool. Every year Dau Barcelona receives visits from Sant Andreu’s schools and, besides getting everyone playing, it explains to teachers and students alike why games need to play a role in classrooms.
Dau Barcelona organised a course with the Barcelona Education Consortium at its 2019 edition, aimed at teachers for that purpose. As the experience proved very positive, we will be repeating the course this year, although the current situation obliges us to provide it in virtual format.
In addition, we have asked the publishers collaborating with the Dau Barcelona Games Festival for their studies and reflections on the educational benefits of their board games. These files (in Catalan and Spanish) represent a good part of that work, available to all teachers.
