Gaming Module for Year 9

Today I start planning a new module of work for Year 9 English class. Students spend more time gaming than reading by choice, and therefore it makes sense to me for us as Teachers to examine and educate about gaming.

No doubt students will teach us more about games than we know, but walking through the development process will be a great learning experience for both teacher and student in the classroom.

I am looking at using Game Salad as my creation tool - so I am off to learn how to use it!

  1. Gaming is a great way of teaching narrative... Games are based around conflict, so a powerful tool for examining types of conflict etc Sounds great.. wish I could be a part of it.
