  • Why is Fortnite so addictive?
     
  • How can parents, caregivers and teachers develop effective strategies (with kids) to guide and manage kids' gaming?

  • What should you do if you see that gaming is becoming unhealthy and you suspect gaming addiction?

Come learn about these topics and more during NewTechKids' seminar for parents, caregivers and teachers on 'Kids and Gaming' which takes place on Sunday, November 24 from 13:00 - 17:00 at the Amsterdam Public Library.

 

The seminar will feature experts discussing gaming from different angles and help attendees better understand gaming and how to proactively manage kids' gaming activities. This event has been designed with children in primary and secondary school in mind.

 

Confirmed speakers:

 

Leonie Kamps, a pyschologist at the Trimbos Institute, will talk about the Institute's research and her work with Gamen InfoLijn: gameninfo.nl and a 24/7 phone line which provide tips and advice about gaming for parents and educators.

 

Emiel Kampen, a game designer and teacher at Utrecht University of the Arts (HKU), will talk about player types, game features and hormone triggers to help attendees gain a deeper understanding of the impact that different games can have on their respective audience. 

 

Jain van Nigtevegt and Antonio Hoogervorst, from Flavour, an Amsterdam-based game design company, will provide a crash course in the rules of gameplay. They'll analyze HackShield, their award-winning game which teaches kids about cybersecurity, to show how gaming can be used for learning.

 

Bram Stamkot, Head Teacher at NewTechKids, will discuss the business models behind gaming and how they influence kids.


 

Araceli Thomas, a mother / game designer turned media coach, will discuss how she has used her background in game design to develop a structured approach for guiding her children's gaming activities based on rules, conditions, levels and rewards.


 

Victor van Rossum will share his personal story of being addicted to gaming for more than seven years before fully recovering.
