As we move towards the end(?) of our game design unit with a Game Showcase today (which will mix up classes to play their games and do some podcasting activities), we continue to have our young designers reflect on the experience. They took an online reflective survey the other day as a way for us to gauge where they are with their project, and their impressions of using game design in the classroom. We also asked them to write out some advice for other teachers who might be considering the concept of gaming in the classroom. They were quite thoughtful, and most were supportive of the idea. A few said that time would be better spent outside in the fresh air than on a computer, and another asked if we could get back to creative writing (we will!!).
