Getting Started with Teaching Game Design
In this presentation, we will show some beginning basics to get you started, give student examples, and show how Scratch can be applied across the curriculum. You will discover how to get students interested in basic game programming and design and get them involved in animation, drawing, interactive art, games, math, music, simulations, and even a possible contest. While this presentation will only "Scratch" the basics, it will leave you and your students scratching for more.
Scratch is a free programming language developed by and made available through MIT. What makes Scratch unique is the way it allows students to easily create their own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art. Best of all, they can share their creations on the worldwide web, collaborate with others as they create, share, remix, and recreate! Scratch certainly goes beyond STEM by bringing in just about anything.
