(Click on image to play the video game)
I did a variation of this last year, but have tinkered with the Making Learning Connected video game for this year, and this week, as we move into the theme of games and stories, it seemed very appropriate to share it out.
Play the game!
But don’t just play the game. Make your own video game.
Here’s how you do it:
First, create an account in Gamestar Mechanic. It’s free for the basic level. I could write a lot about Gamestar but let me just say that it is a video game design site built for students, and they earn experience i game design elements while playing “Quests” and building their own games. You don’t need to do the Quests to build a game, however (You just can’t publish it to the world until you finish the first Quest).
This will bring you to the game construction area, where you can begin to make your video game.
Have fun. Build games. Learn about design. Think of your students.
