Peace Games: Use and Development Training Workshop

Peace Games: Use and Development Training Workshop

From 16th to 18th February 2022, the project Peace Games landed in Reggio Emilia (Italy) for the playful and interactive Learning Activity ‘Peace games use and development training workshop’. The workshop, hosted by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), counted on the participation of the project partners and aimed at testing the some of the games that were previously selected for the Peace Game Catalogue.

The testing phase, which was carried out during the first two days of the workshop, represented the premise for the creation of different learning paths. Indeed, the workshop resulted in the design of the following seven learning paths:

  • Cooperation
  • Emotions
  • Decision-making
  • Children’s rights and democracy
  • War and peace
  • Stereotypes and cultural differences
  • Disabilities and bullying

These learning paths were individuated to facilitate teachers and educators in orientating themselves through the above-mentioned Catalogue and in identifying effective games to rise peaceful and conscious attitudes in pupils. The learning paths have been divided not only into topics but also taking in consideration age differences. Thus, both learning paths for primary and secondary schools have been developed to make citizenship and peace education accessible for everyone.

During the project’s piloting phase, that will be carried out in the next months, the seven learning paths will be suggested to formal and non-formal educational settings. This represents a unique opportunity to improve the learning paths as well as to introduce innovative educational tools into schools and beyond. 

Therefore, if you are a teacher and/or an educator, take into consideration the possibility to participate in the incoming piloting phase.
