It was really exciting to see what students did with their games using Scratch. We stressed that there had to be some sort of educational aspect to their games, and some had stronger connections that others, but all tried and created something using tools they had little experience with before starting this project.
I was first inspired to do this project after hearing Steve Ciampaglia from the Plug-in Studio at the NAEA Convention a couple of years ago speak about using video game design with students.
Here are some games that resulted from our STEAM collaboration:
This was a fun way to lead into break and something I know we will do again next year (hopefully with more time)!
I hope everyone enjoyed their last days before break with their students and finished 2016 with much success!
