The Games Rating Authority is the UK body responsible for applying the PEGI ratings to every boxed game sold at retail. They have put together a set of resources for Schools to help teachers and children learn about how games are rated.
For the £50 subscription per annum each school gets access to the interactive eLearning courses for KS2, KS3 and 18+. These cover topics that include why we have age ratings on games, how games are rated and how to play safely.
Along with the course this will also provide access to the GRA’s quarterly eMagazine with educational games, parental control tips and updates on the latest technologies in games.
We will be testing out the resources with some schools to see how they get on. To find out more visit the Games Rating Authority website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
