Educators' DayPresentation10:20-13:00Le Bourhis, Mikael; Weder, Prof. Franziska; Berry, Vincent; Huchette, Michael; Hirth, TiagoGames as motive forces of change: education & society [EN]Saal BerlinGame in Lab, collaboration between Asmodee Research and the Innovation Factory, is a board game research supporting program.

This dynamic initiative is based on three main goals:

- Financial support for board game research projects
- Developing a mixed community between professionals from both research fields and board game industry
- Sharing of scientific knowledge with a broader audience.

In the first part of this session, the program will be presented by Mikael Le Bourhis, Asmodee Research's Manager. For this first appearance at SPIEL, Game in Lab's team has taken the opportunity to invite four international experts for a round table session entitled Games as motive forces of change: education & society .

From sociology to sensibilisation and mathematics, they will discuss the recent influences of board games at different scales.

Educators' DayPresentation13:15-14:00Mattioli, FrancescoDo board games make people smarter? Two initial exploratory studies [EN]Saal BerlinIn recent years, we are witnessing the rebirth of board games. This contribution aims to investigate the educational potential of non-random board games in two ways: the comparison of performances of „expert adult players and „adult non-players through a correlation study (n=45) and the comparison between the results achieved by a group of children after 26 hours of game training (n=10) and those of a control group that carried out traditional educational activities (n=10) by using a non-randomized Control Group Pretest-Posttest. Specifically, the findings related to fluid intelligence, analytical and converging cognitive processes and creativity were compared. The results suggest that non-random board games can be an important stimulus for the cognitive functions, with a particular focus on the creative side, and therefore have an important educational function.

Educators' DayPresentation14:00-14:35Nir, AlonGames in primary school [EN]Saal BerlinGames grab students' attention and actively engage them. By using games in the class room, the education of our kids becomes more attractive, more fun and more effective. Games offer many things, but to highlight a few:

- A safe place to learn social skills. For example, how to help each other, teamwork and how to deal with losing or with cheaters
- Practice in concentration and self control (and other executive functions)
- A new way to reach kids who need extra attention
- Challenges to (highly intelligent) students
- Educational games often offer a fun way of bringing certain knowledge into practice. For example, our game Formula significantly increases math skills while children are not even aware of doing maths; they are just playing a game and having fun!

Do you want to play games at home, school or on holiday with your friends, children or family and get something extra out of it? Come and join us.

Educators' DayPresentation14:35-15:10Freund, Dr. Jan-DavidIt's your turn! - Psychological reasons for you to unlock the potentials of game based learning [EN]Saal BerlinDriven by a range of psychological mechanisms games have the potential to become a core medium for informal and also formal educational contexts.

This is especially the case if these mechanisms are taken into consideration in each step of game development.

The talk highlights important mechanisms as well as games illustrating how to make the best pedagogical use of these mechanisms.

Educators' DayPresentation15:10-15:45Valentiner-Branth, ChristinaSpielstarke Schulen!

Die Spielexpertin stellt ihr alltagstaugliches Konzept der „Spielstarken Schule vor. Mit dem praxiserprobten Leitfaden können Lehrende das wertvolle Bildungsmedium Spiel im Unterricht mit der gesamten Klasse einsetzen - und das von Anfang an.

Darum haben das ZNL TransferZentrum für Neurowissenschaften und Lernen und der Verein Mehr Zeit für Kinder die Initiative „Spielen macht Schule ins Leben gerufen. Schulen können sich hierbei jährlich um eines von 200 Spielezimmern mit pädagogisch geprüften Spielwaren bewerben. Ziel des Projektes ist es, Kindern in Zeiten von erhöhtem Bildschirmkonsum das klassische Spielen wieder näher zu bringen und ihnen das Lernen zu erleichtern, denn spielen macht schlau!

Educators' DayPresentation16:35-17:10Hild, RonaldSpiele zur Förderung narrativer Kompetenzen im (Geschichts-)Unterricht anhand des Beispiels Textura [DE]Saal Berlin„Textura ist ein Ansatz, die narrativen Kompetenzen von Schülerinnen und Schülern im (Geschichts-)Unterricht zu fördern und gleichzeitig inhaltliches Wissen zu vertiefen. Aufgrund seines modularen Aufbaus kann das Konzept für verschiedene Themen oder Epochen adaptiert werden, so dass das Spiel in unterschiedlichen Klassenstufen und Schulformen eingesetzt werden kann.

Im Rahmen des Vortrags werden Möglichkeiten und Potentiale aufgezeigt sowie Impulse für die Gestaltung eigener Themensets durch die Lehrenden gegeben.

Educators' DayPresentation17:10-17:45Fuchs, MartinaWir müssen sie kriegen, solange sie jung sind! [DE]Saal BerlinBrettspiele können viel zur Entwicklung von jungen Menschen beitragen. Wie schaffe ich es, Schüler von der Vielfältigkeit der Brettspielwelt zu begeistern? Eine Brettspiel AG muss nicht nur aus Spielen bestehen, die die Schüler kennen und lieben. Ein systematischer Aufbau kann sie dahin führen, viele wichtige Mechanismen in der Brettspielwelt kennen zu lernen.

Immer wieder kommt es zu Problemen, wenn es darum geht, eine Brettspielsammlung für die eigene Schule anzulegen. Praktische Tipps können helfen, dieses Vorhaben erfolgreich umzusetzen.
