The Social Evolution of Gaming.

I found this great, thought provoking infographic via @tombarrett. I found the stat about 25% of gamers playing with their spouse OR parent particularly interesting. It would be great to see gaming as more of a family thing – I used to play loads of card games, board games, subbuteo etc with my family when I was growing up. It was a huge amount of fun and lead to great social learning experiences.


I think it would be good to create some kind of parent/child gaming experience through school – maybe using some of the Consolarium’s kit which @derekrobertson has available for loan.

I’ll have a think about how we could do this. For now I’ll enjoy the infographic.

    I think this has real potential to take forward as family link working for a school. As society changes schools need to find ways of adapting and embracing this.
