How will playing games help my child in his education?

The platform adds structure as opposed to 'Casually' playing video games. We have broken games down and created tasks that help develop key skills for children (leadership, creativity, time management, decision making are just some of the examples). An example of this would be we explore children's creativity by giving them a specific creative design task. They then can be critiqued by other students in a positive way to not only get better at the game but explore their own creativity. They can also display their presentation skills by explaining their creative design choices.

How often do the tasks in games get changed?

New content will be refreshed every term. This includes games, key skills tasks, coaching, tournaments, and seminars. Some tournaments will repeat if they are popular, but no student will complete content they have done in previous terms.

How often are the tournaments run, and in what games?

This is bespoken to the school and fully flexible to how many the school would like in the term calendar. Tournaments are also available on most games on the platform. If the game has a competition or creative format there is a possibility for a tournament.
