Archaeogaming Video Learning Modules
Welcome to SASA’s newest project and recent recipient of an NJCH Action Grant, funded through the NEH!
WHAT IS ARCHAEOGAMING?
Archaeogaming is a new field that integrates the methods of archaeological discovery in the environment of video games, using interactive and collaborative play to teach and learn about the past.
What are SASA's Video Learning Modules?
Through the work of educators and scholars, these modules incorporate custom videos with lesson plans centered on specific Ancient Studies topics and themes. We are currently working on our Pilot Program funded by the New Jersey Council for Humanities and National Endowment for the Humanities. These modules will launch in New Jersey 6th grade classrooms in the Fall with the start of the 2021-2022 academic year.
To create dynamic educational modules that utilize video game content to engage students in classrooms and help them explore the ancient world in original and memorable ways.
To lift the burden on underfunded schools and teachers by providing cohesive lesson packs and materials which are easily adaptable and ready to use in the classroom.
To attract and support teachers’ implementation of innovative technology in their classrooms.
