There are quite a few things that are important when it comes to gameschooling children that are different ages. Make sure that you know who is going to play the game and make sure they understand how to play the game as well. You should try to get some cooperative games because it helps build camaraderie and trust between family members. Finally, make sure that you let each player feel that they have a voice and they are an equal part of the group.
- Gaming paired with learning can work very well. It is important to know from the onset the age of each participant and thereby create an age-appropriate experience.
- By opening a roundtable discussion about what each age-appropriate game should consist of, it creates opportunities to discuss issues of empathy too.
- Games that require groups to work together are a great way to foster team-work, confidence and an ability to utilize and appreciate different skillsets.
