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.
