Create Games, Don't Just Play Them - Kodu Game Lab and Microsoft Technologies

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Take games in education to the next level by having kids create their own games. Kodu lets kids and teens create games on the PC and XBox via a simple visual programming language and can be used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as programming. Anyone can use Kodu to make a game, young children, as well as adults, with or without design or programming experience. In this session, we’ll explore the Kodu environment, create a simple interactive game, and discover ready-to-use curriculum resources including video tutorials, lesson plans, and student activities. We’ll take a look at Kodu lesson modules for mathematics and science. In a special segment, we’ll look at advanced Microsoft technologies that will allow students to create games for an Xbox, PC, Kinect Sensor, or even a mobile phone. Kodu and all tools demonstrated are available for free.
