Gaming Literacy 101
As a part of Festival Bandung Mendongeng 2017 event, Seminar Literasi Warna Warni Literasi Anak was held on November 11th and featured academics and experts in children’s literary world. Eko became one of the speakers and shared about how to optimize board game as a new literacy and learning media.
Eko started his session by playing one round of Werewolf with the participants. From only one round of Werewolf, Eko emphasized on how a game can lead players’ imagination to a different setting. This can be treated as the first step to increase literacy skill.
A game is a closed, formal system where players can do anything inside the game without have to worry because of freedom of play in game environment. It means that parent can do any kind of learning process with game by not only having learning points inside the game but also during the process of play session itself.
