Game Design in Schools
Game design has undergone major paradigm shifts in the last few years allowing younger and younger kids the opportunities to build compelling and original games with little or no prior experience or programming skills. This workshop will introduce and highlight several game design platforms with the pros and cons of each given to the audience so that they can build their own game design program in a school, after-school, club or camp setting from the materials presented.
