A board game proposal for teaching informatics related topics in Early Childhood Education
University of Western Macedonia, Greece
This paper presents an idea of a board game designed for teaching informatics related topics to kindergarteners, as part of an undergraduate thesis. The idea emerged through a course about game-based learning and popular board game ideas were examined. Based on a brainstorming session, the appropriate format of the board was selected. Then, the topics were selected, addressing the issue of internet use by young children. The subtopics identified were that of safety while accessing the internet, proper computer use, technological matters and functional potential (all explained in detail in the paper). The game idea, mechanics and design are presented in this paper.
