New Learners are Game Designers: Video Game Design with Scratch

Sophie Idromenos

Who has a hyper-linked mind that processes information in parallel with a “need for speed?”  The New Learner! Engage your students by transforming them into game designers, using Scratch 2.0, the free online software. No downloads required, just sign up for a Scratch account (scratch.mit.edu) and start creating. Learn how to use, teach, and integrate the software by following along as we build a simple game. Furthermore, see how Scratch promotes collaboration by sharing, downloading, and remixing other users code then posting revisions to the gallery. In the end, you will gain a basic understanding of Game Design without getting lost in the complexities of programming syntax. [Note: Scratch 2.0 requires Flash Player.]
