One powerful tool that can help teachers address this issue are popular videogames. Unlike any other form of entertainment, some commercial videogames have the potential to offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in an environment that is unfamiliar to them yet safe. This encourages them to explore other world views in a fun, engaging and entertaining way. This webinar will present a concrete example of the implementation of a popular videogame in a college classroom for educational purposes
