A BROMSGROVE-based company is looking to find £5,000 to develop a social media project which promotes the educational benefits of video games.

EDU Gaming has launched a crowdfunding campaign which aims to get as many as people as possible to donate to the project which will help bring educators, students and gamers together to share ideas and promote the use of e-learning in schools.

The company aims to show people the benefits of using a subject of a game to teach about a wider topic, in-game lessons which physically engage pupils and how wider skills can be picked up from gaming, such as programming and video production.

Josh Davies, CEO of EDU Gaming, said after speaking with many students and educators they got the distinct impression a number of educators were not as digitally savvy as their students.

He added: “We hope this platform will help educators learn from students and gamers alike, and we are asking for support on our mission in helping to make education more fun and accessible for everyone.”
