Jointly organised by the Media Literacy Council (MLC) and SOOS OIO, this webinar on gaming and gaming addiction is back for its second edition! After a successful first run, the second edition will build on parents’ understanding of gaming and gaming addiction while addressing any further concerns they may have. The webinar will take place on Saturday, 21 November at 10 am via Zoom.
SOOS OIO is a social enterprise that uses gaming to empower youth through workshops and friendly competitions in the community. This webinar is one of the projects supported by the MLC through its Better Internet x Youth Call-for-Proposals (CFP) initiative, which aims to support digital literacy community initiatives that promote online safety, responsibility and civility.
The 3-hour webinar will consist of sharing sessions from gaming industry experts from SOOS OIO, an expert from the MLC, and youth psychologists on gaming trends, what makes it popular among children, its benefits and pitfalls, and how to identify and curb gaming addition.
Gaming as a topic is of particular interest now as youths spend more time on their devices amid extended periods of stay-home and safe distancing measures. How can parents harness gaming as a tool to enhance their child’s overall development? Understanding gaming and its potential effects can help parents better manage children’s gaming habits, and will also serve as a bridge to building greater understanding between parent and child.
