Introduction to Digital Recreation & Online Gaming
This course introduces children to playing in a digital space. In a safe and controlled environment, students will be introduced to the tools for communicating with friends online as well as the appropriate ways to interact with people you know and don’t know. Students will be tasked with a group project where coordination, communication and teamwork will be critical to completing the task over a span of the course.
This course is offered for children ages 6 through 12. We recommend that a student’s reading level is at least level E to get the most benefit from the course. A tablet, phone or computer with internet access is required for this class, as well as the purchase of the game we will be using (approx $10-$20).
We also recommend that parents of younger learners join them for the first few classes to assist with setup and to help them get comfortable attending class on their own.
This class will be offered as a pay what you want course and will provide your kids a framework of not only how to play with friends online, but also what is appropriate behavor to expect and tolerate within all digital spaces.
