Homo Ludens (Role Player Human)

Games have a big educational origin!

The aim of this interdisciplinary project is Homo Ludens (Role Player Human). Huizinga proved that work and play aren’t separate concepts.

Games are important for physical and spiritual health!

Huizinga finds a game in the roots of language, mythos, and ritual. And they are all broke out of the game. According to Huizinga, the followings are the important qualities of a game:

  • The game is an optional and voluntary action
  • A game combines with a concept of task and homework

The second feature of a game is related to its freedom, and this is the difference between daily life and real life. The third feature is the separation of the game from daily life in terms of location and time. Every game has its own rules. The rules of the game are binding and leaving no room for doubt.
