ProsocialLearn, funded by the European Union, is creating fun educational games for children to learn social and emotional well-being skills. By working together, teachers and game developers are creating new learning opportunities for inclusive education.
Acquiring skills for social and emotional well-being is important for inclusive societies and academic achievement. Digital games can be tailored to teach the benefits of cooperation, as well as the ability to recognise the emotions of others and express trustworthiness – prosocial skills – helping children to appreciate team-work, recognise the value of understanding other people’s needs and achieve academically. The project will create a prosocial game development and distribution platform to distribute prosocial digital games from game companies to the educational sector and work with communities of teachers in Europe to evaluate our approach.
