Game will teach about bullying

18-09-2017

Colleagues from the Open University will start two international research projects about bullying. Project Blurred Lives aims to understand cyberbullying from the youth’s perspective. The name of the second project – Gate-bull - stands for ‘Using a Games approach to Teach children about discriminatory BULLying’. It aims to develop a simulation game in which children can experience and respond to discriminatory bullying scenarios. The game gives feedback on the in-game choices children make. This way children practice intercultural and social skills. Five-hundred children from four countries will participate in this project. We at GEMH-lab are already curious about the results!
