Games for Change Games are one of the oldest forms of human interaction; with every culture throughout history having designed and played games that trained players in the physical, mental and social skills their societies valued. Games are a major part of our culture today and key to the growth of our digital entertainment industry. Often though games are seen as just a diversion. But games, and play, are far more than that. As humans we play to connect, to co-operate and communicate, and ultimately to learn. Games are key. Like music, film, books or theatre, games offer an experience we can share with each other. This class will look at games from a different perspective--how can games be used to support changes in our society and ourselves.
