PERSONNALIZED SCHOOL PROJECTS AND THEMATIC WORKSHOP

Creating educational video games is a great way to encourage perseverance at school for both primary and secondary students.

By finding sources of motivation for students, schools can benefit from offering personalized activity projects or thematic workshops based the creation of video games :

  • video-game creation activities that take place for a few hours, a half-day, full day, or longer
  • made-to-measure concepts on the history and careers available in the video game industry in the form of conferences presented by a professional

Training for TEACHERS

Studio XP team can offer personalized training for teachers, including theoretical basics and workshops. This enables teachers to better understand the key concepts they teach in class and apply them to computing projects with a video-game base.

This type of learning enables us to :

  • support teachers as they hone their technological skills and knowledge so they can integrate it into their teaching
  • learn about the latest tools and apps available or make it easier for teachers to do their work
  • work with your team to help integrate programming into their various disciplines, from math to science and more

Studio XP can also set up various training sessions to provide your team with a unique opportunity to develop integrated multi-subject projects for all your students.

Our projects will allow teachers to put the mathematical ideas they teach into practice, modify code and add value to their projects. This is ideal for anyone who wants to expand their teaching while maintaining control of the rhythm at which they teach as well as their pedagogical content.

PEDAGOGICAL DAY

The Studio XP team offers specific programs for primary and secondary students to meet the needs of different schools. By hosting a pedagogical day, your institution can establish a stimulating program that will motivate students to spend the day at your school.

Specific workshops can also be set up at our partner high schools to create a sense of loyalty in primary-school students. These students will then associate video-game creation with the school that’s hosting the event. It’s a simple way for a high school to take advantage of their service offer to attract more students.
