An opportunity or an obstacle in the education?

As digital technology evolves, the gaming industry grows, and young people are increasingly using it, it is important to foster discussion about whether these trends represent an obstacle or can be used as an opportunity for the growth and development of young people.



The Konrad Adenauer Foundation and LEAD would like to announce the conference "Gamification: Opportunity or Obstacle in Education", which aims to stimulate discussion about the impact and role of games in the education of young people, as well as about the opportunities offered by this industry for the education of young people within the formal and informal education. In addition, during the conference, a tournament will be organized to play the first online board game for political education "Izborologija".
