The aim of each of the workshop is to train teachers on issues related to the educational potential of videogames in a teaching and learning environment. The teachers involved in the workshops are to acquire the skills to be able to identify videogames that can be adapted to be used for educational purposes and to actually create simple educational videogames working in cooperation with their colleagues.
The Lithuanian teachers have identified the pilot course, which will take the form of an educational videogame, they intend to create during the workshops. It is called "Adventures in the Pythagoras Room" and focus on history of mathematics. The pilot course will be created with Adventure Maker and some elements of it will be made with Flash.
