Education Scotland and game based learning

The Consolarium

Man and children playing computer game

Education Scotland's game-based learning initiative, The Consolarium, has been available to teachers across Scotland since 2006. 

Please note: Software and hardware loaned from the Consolarium is currently being recalled for review. All those who are affected are being contacted directly.  Future loans will not be available pending that review.

The Consolarium has been working with teachers across Scotland to explore and share just how the appropriate use of computer games can have a positive impact on teaching and learning. More recently, it has been encouraging pupils to become creators - not just consumers - of games with a game design initiative.
