As part of the ProsocialLearn game developer support network, meant to assist SMEs in the creative and collaborative development of prosocial games using ProsocialLearn methodology and game components, consortium member PlayGen has developed a Prosocial Game Design Cards toolkit.
ProsocialLearn, a 36-month project funded by the European Union, has produced a short video that introduces the platform and highlights some of the current prosocial games in development.
ProsocialLearn provides a unified platform for schools, teachers, game developers and students to find, develop, share and play games designed to promote prosocial behaviours.
Several new reports by ProsocialLearn consortium members are now available for download.
“(Final) Prosocial Affect Fusion and Player Modelling” (D3.4) describes game technology capabilities for observing and analysing the performance of players aiming to learn prosocial skills using digital games in schools.
Emotions with Friends is an educational game to support children and teachers in classroom activities relating to the demonstration and recognition of emotions and social cues.
The game combines the fun of playing with virtual characters and discovering a range of different emotional and social expressions. The game is intended to be used in a class room environment as an aid for discussions surrounding facial expressions and other social signals, in addition to enriching the emotion vocabulary of students. It also enables teachers and students to construct their own sequences of facial expressions for others to view and play.
