Game Lessons is a program of free lesson plans and professional development that help you use videogames in the classroom.
We help teachers to expand their teaching and learning repertoire using the tools many students are passionate about – videogames. We foster a cross-curriculum learning community and build teachers’ capacity to create, access and share practical lesson plans.
You do not need to be ‘a gamer' to engage with the opportunities that videogames offer for learning across the curriculum.
Game Lessons is an ACMI Education initiative funded by the Department of Education Victoria's Strategic Partnerships Program, and supported by a committed network of teachers.
The full library is launching soon; see below for three "taster" lesson plans that showcase great ideas for literacy.
