In this blog post, researcher Riikka Aurava discusses game pedagogy within the Finnish school context. The publication is based on the policy brief published by the Research Council of Finland, which was supported by the outcomes of the research project Growing Mind, a joint endeavour involving Tampere University, University of Helsinki, University of Turku, and Kasko, the educational department of the municipality of Helsinki. Aurava presents why games should become part of the formal educational environment and how they could be implemented.
