Play To Learn (PTL)
Learning the traditional games of a certain country is an interesting way to understand its culture. PTL aims to gather several Asian and European students and have them exchange information about the usual games they played as children. They will share information about the object of each game, including the mechanics, number of players, or props that may be needed. Instructions for playing can be made through pictures, diagrams, or video. These will be collected and posted on the project page, which will showcase the traditional games for everyone to try out and appreciate.
“PLAY TO LEARN” (PTL) project aims at establishing a flow of communication between Asian and European students in order to enhance their knowledge of the traditional cultural historical aspects of the two continents. We believe their traditional games are the best way to learn about other countries. After researching the students will have a clear understanding that the folk games contain universal elements, commonly used by children around the world.In PTL the students edit the children’s folk games of their country: rules, artworks, photographs, videos in English.
The main aim of the project is to promote learning English and to expand ideas how to make the learning process as fun as possible. The project language should be in English so as the students could know other cultures and improve their
English language as well.
We hope that PTL online http://ace-games4us.org/ will be a great collection for the participating students to know and preserve traditional games and to know more details about children’s folk games as well as the cross- culture in games today.
