So many students spend hours passively consuming endless hours of digital media. This is not usually their fault - they aren't being given access to the tools they need to become digital Creators instead of Consumers.
You can introduce them to the world of Video Game Development, leveraging their existing interests as a springboard. Chances are, many of them already have ideas about the types of games they would like to build, the stories they want to tell, and the types of characters they want to bring to life.
Game development is a great way for students of all ages to build foundational technical skills and experience practical applications of mathematics they learn in class. It also provides the perfect digital medium for creative expression - where stories, characters, and animations interactive logic are brought together.
Schools Using Flowlab:
I built Flowlab as a way to introduce game development and programming logic to my own kids. It has since been adopted by thousands of Schools, After School Programs, Libraries, and Summer Camps all over the world who love it.
You don't have to be a Video Game Expert or a programmer to learn (or teach) game creation using Flowlab. It runs in the cloud so there is nothing to install and it's perfect for remote learning (It even works great on Chromebooks).
My Junior High students made their first character controller today in video game design. Computational thinking at its finest! #flowlab pic.twitter.com/vS0z7ORLMO— ConradDrover (@ConradDrover) February 5, 2021
