The Flemish video games vertical gets an all-round support
Poland became the first country that appreciated the true value of the sector. The Flemish Department of Education and Training followed its successful example and also decided to implement computer games into the core of the education process. The ministry is going to use a special tool, which will help to introduce the vertical to the academic activity. Teachers will be able to apply it to develop various tasks for different age groups.
