Calling all Teachers!
Are you keen to bring fresh and engaging, curriculum-focused, real-world learning to your classroom?
In conjunction with ACMI’s Code Breakers Exhibition at the East Gippsland Art Gallery, we are pleased to offer you the chance to be a founding participant in your region in the new videogame-centred Education project called Game Lessons.
Game Lessons is designed to support teachers to create, access and share well-designed lesson plans for impactful and meaningful learning experiences using videogames. Game Lessons provides expert support, resources and professional learning networks. It fosters a cross-disciplinary learning community and will build your capacity to deliver more effective teaching and learning programs.
Join a new Victoria-wide network of teachers and experts who are co-developing resources which activate the untapped potential of videogames in the classroom. Begin by participating in the next Game Lessons Professional Development Day and build on and share your expertise.
Teachers please note - you don’t need to be ‘a gamer’ to engage with the opportunities videogames offer for learning across the curriculum.
• Curriculum areas: Primary and Secondary teachers, across learning areas
• Bring your own device
• Principals please note funding is available towards CRT costs

Who is running this PD?
Vincent Trundle, Digital Education Producer at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
Vincent strives to improve education practice around screen, digital and media literacy with the goal of building inquisitive, creative and social individuals. For over a decade Vincent has championed videogame education including developing programs for teachers and students around two major international videogame exhibitions, leading ACMI's national Screen It competition for students’ games, animations or films, and organising Australia's first major Games in Education Teacher’s conference.
Vincent was the creator of ACMI’s Games Net – a program funded by DET Strategic Partnerships Program (SPP) bringing students together in online teams to develop videogames with industry mentors. Vincent now leads Game Lessons, a new SPP initiative collaborating with teachers to develop cross-curriculum videogame focused teaching resources into a searchable database.
