This presentation will put the focus on the influence of the Great Western Schism (1378-1417) on late medieval political events. I will try to pose and frame certain historical questions around the role the “religious” crisis could have played on politics. For example, did the Schism influence the late medieval definition of tyranny?
Escape games are a great tool to gamify your classroom. You can tailor them to your needs by creating your adventures for any levels or subjects! In this workshop, you will learn how to create an online escape game using the platform Genial.ly by discovering these four core elements: Story, Clues, Codes and Activities. The event will take place on Friday, May 27, from 5 pm to 7 pm (EDT).
