Changing the Game

Virtual lesson

Discover the history of videogames, how they've changed over time, and the change they're bringing

Videogames haven't just had impacted culture, they've had a huge social impact as well. In this talk, students consider representation and accessibility through videogames and explore how videogames have evolved to be more than just entertainment.

This lesson focuses on:

  • the impact of games culturally and socially
  • issues around representation and accessibility in videogames
  • how videogames go beyond entertainment
  • games as tools for change

This is a live virtual session run by ACMI Educators. It includes interactive activities and student participation.
