I am working with a brand new class called Media Tech. Kids have naturally divided into groups based on interest, and for most all of their interests I had tools available that they could work with. For example, one group wanted to make videos, and I handed them cameras and a laptop and sent them to find a place to work. One group, however, wanted to make their own video games. I didn’t have an easy answer for them, so I asked my colleagues through Twitter.
Here are the responses, perhaps the resources will be useful for someone else wanting to help kids build video games.
