Video games are not only a productive subject for school lessons as a diverse cultural asset. They can also be used directly in school learning. The two-stage workshop is therefore aimed at teachers* who want to learn more about topics and characteristics of video games that are suitable for teaching. Two workshops build on each other:

Firstly, a beginners' workshop aims to give an overview of current concepts from the subjects of history and German, to find specific information and to develop initial ideas.
In a second workshop, participants with advanced knowledge design teaching concepts in small groups. Together, they identify points of contact for their lessons and exchange ideas.

Some of the visitors from the beginners' workshop can continue with the second workshop.

Educators have the opportunity to have their participation in a gamescom congress workshop credited as a further education measure by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. To receive a certificate of participation, please send a screenshot of the online seminar, which you will take towards the end of the workshop, to the following e-mail address: h.wallbott@koelnmesse.de
