Are your students constantly talking about video games?
Have you noticed that they are tired or are having a harder time focusing?
Did you know that there is a connection between video games and gambling?
For over 25 years the Gambling Awareness Program (GAP) has helped Saskatchewan students learn how to protect themselves against risky gambling behaviour through engaging and interactive presentations.
Although we focus on traditional forms of gambling, recent trends have started to blur the lines between video gaming and gambling. Our engaging sessions help students self-reflect on their technology habits and offer guidance in exploring healthy choices and decision-making.
GAP has designed presentations for middle years (gr. 6-8) and high school (gr. 9-12) which meet various curriculum outcomes that align with Health, Math, Psychology, Financial Literacy and more!
Our fun and interactive classroom presentations are between 60 to 90 minutes long, and guide students through concepts like chance, probability, and risk. We also offer information on how to recognize the warning signs of addiction and provide FREE resources for students and educators to take home.
With recent developments regarding COVID-19, the Gambling Awareness Program has adapted and is now able to offer virtual presentations. While we prefer to deliver our sessions in-person, we understand that at this time it may not be possible. To better accommodate all schools, we have taken our in-person sessions and converted them into streaming presentations that can be delivered in real-time using online platforms such as Zoom, Google Meets, Skype and more. **Resource can be mailed prior to presentation**
