Digital games Maltese play
Researchers at the University of Malta are studying the impact that digital and video games are having on the Maltese community.
Academic members of staff from the faculties of education and ICT joined forces to evaluate the effects that digital and video games can have on learning that goes beyond classroom-based teaching, the University said.
They will seek to answer various questions including: what percentage of the Maltese population plays such games? What type of games are most popular? Is there a gap between generations when it comes to who plays games and how frequently?
“Results are expected to offer some insight into how Malta can maintain a competitive edge in the sector while exploring the educational implications of the digital and video game market vis-à-vis the national curriculum framework,” the University said.
Maltese citizens and those residing permanently here can take part in the national survey by visiting www.digitalgamesmalta.com.
