Are Video Games Saving the World? Should YOU be Playing Them?

6:30pm - 8:00pm
Waupaca Area Public Library
Winchester Academy presents Are Video Games Saving the World? Should YOU be Playing Them?

Chelsea Lovejoy, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Psychology at UW–Stout, where she has taught the psychology of video games since 2014. Talk about “the dangers” of video games fills the media–they must be right, right? But what does the research REALLY say? This presentation looks at some of the ways video games and game technology help improve the physical and social world around us and enhance human connections. We will further examine how they can support well-being, physical health, and healthy cognitive aging. Ways to start a personal mission of self-improvement, connect more meaningfully with others, and even make the world a better place, will be explored.

This program is sponsored by Ruby and Barry Shaw.

The Academy offers, on average, twenty-five programs annually. There is no membership required for attendance at programs. All are FREE of charge and open to the general public. Programs are usually held at the Waupaca Area Public Library on Monday evenings at 6:30. Other venues and days of the week are occasionally used for special seminars and musical programs (e.g., churches, or other sites that can accommodate larger crowds). Some programs might include controversial subject matter, but the Academy takes no position and seeks to provide balanced and reliable information.

Stay a while.
