Optimizing Game-Based Learning for Family
Last week, Kummara and Rumah Inspirasi hold a seminar for families called “Optimizing Game Potential as Learning Tool for Family” (Mengoptimalkan Potensi Game Sebagai Media Belajar Seluruh Keluarga) at Binus University Joseph Wibowo Center Campus Jakarta. Eko joined as one of the speakers along with Aar Sumardiono, home-schooling practician and founder of Rumah Inspirasi.
The first speaker, Aar Sumardiono, shared his experiences on how his family use game as a learning media. Before playing with the kids, he set some rules such as the type of game, duration and also review the game after finish playing. By playing with the kids and reviewing the game together at the end, kids can learn how to turn their consumptive behavior into productive behavior.
Eko became the second speaker and talked about the benefits of using games as a learning tool. Eko emphasized on 4 freedom of play and how it can be implemented during learning session using games. The game session will not only help kids to learn better but also help to tighten parent and kids bond.
More than 25 parents joined the event and tried several board games that Manikmaya Games team brought such as The Festivals, Mashup Monsters, Get Egg, Bhinneka and Mat Goceng. After the play session, parents were introduced to Game-Based Learning Canvas as a tool to help parent choose the right game and discover the learning points inside the game.
