Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will practice social skills while interacting with other gamers.
I have been gaming since 1986, starting with Boulderdash on the Commodore 64. My husband loves all the game types that I don't, so I have exposure to a wide variety of games and platforms. I have several other gaming classes, and I love to talk games with the next generation! 
None. Although learners may want to game between classes.:)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class may use breakout rooms to allow learners to co-op play with others or chat about certain games in smaller groups. The teacher will alternate among rooms to moderate and keep on track. Learners may also want to share personal information such as gamer tags, server codes, or IP address in order to co-op play. Please talk to your learner about cyber security and what should or should not be shared during class.

Game screenshots and screen shares should only feature games that do not contain inappropriate language and/or nudity. Parents should review these guidelines with their learners when deciding which games to share in class. Please keep in mind the age range and possible sensitivities of other learners when deciding what to share in class. Video games have a rating system, and it is easy to do a quick web search to find out what may be objectionable about particular games. Generally speaking, games shared should be rated E, E10+, Teen, or M. Learners should announce what they plan to share and give other learners a chance to consent, as some titles may contain material that could contain scary, gory, or violent elements. While the class is for mature gamers, language used in class discussions should still be PG. Verbal expression in class is expected to be respectful and not include course or foul language. Use of profanity beyond the first warning may result in unenrollment from the class.

***If your learner is not okay with content in Mature titles, you should consider enrolling in Game On! instead.***
