Game-based learning to be implemented at Georgian schools
Georgia’s Ministry of Education plans to introduce board games at schools. The tendering process is announced in three lots and the Ministry will spend up to 90 000 GEL to carry out this project.

The initiative is aimed to promote the development of various skills among children from first to fourth grades. "Through games, a child should get useful information in the direction of natural science," says the tendering documentation. The manual reads: "The game begins with dealing the cards and every participant sees them except the dealer. The participants play in pairs. The first pair starts the game. Each participant must know (remember at a glance) the card his partner holds and then he tries to place red beads correctly on the board. The player tells the answer and returns the card. If the answer is correct, the pair is given 2 additional plates.

Playing in the second to sixth grades has an additional goal of training some morphological issues, counting skills, data collection and analysis. Game manual: "The principle of the game is to make a crossword. 2 to 4 players participate in the game, the aim of which is to create words. Each letter is marked with a particular point and the bonus points on the board double the score. Find out who gets the most points.

As for the school’s principal and middle level pupils, the Ministry chooses a board game that will facilitate the enrichment of general literacy and vocabulary. The
games of the higher-grade students are described as follows: "The game begins with dealing the cards and there will be a proverb or aphorism on each of them."

The initiative to introduce boarding games at schools belongs to the Minister of Education and Science Alexander Jejelava.

The tendering process is underway in a non-competitive environment. Each lot has only one applicant. One of them is a Georgian games company "Tamashobana", whose products are available on the local retail market within 5-35 GEL.
