Games von Schülern für Schüler
Game development in schools has been practiced abroad for some time. In Germany, however, there are hardly any initiatives.
Although, according to the non-profit organization Institute of Play, game development demonstrably promotes teamwork in school lessons, helps to understand complex problems, and promotes problem-solving,
critical and creative thinking, there is, as far as we are informed, no such iniative in Baden Württemberg within which which students develop their own games under the guidance of professional game developers and teachers.
The cooperation between schools, games agencies and universities also enables practice-oriented learning and promotes the local game industry.
Early promotion of young talent should help to secure the game industry in Baden-Württemberg. The cooperation between professional game developers
and teachers also promotes practice-related teaching and an interdisciplinary exchange, which can help game developers to design learning games for the classroom by exchanging learning objectives,
learning materials and game development skills.
