Let's face it, video games are fun. If they weren't, there would not be a multi-BILLION dollar industry around them. But what happens when you peek under the hood? What makes up a video game? And how can you use the allure of video games for good?
This course will introduce you to the world of video game design and development (VGD&D), and will also relate how VGD&D can work in the classroom to reinforce concepts in math, reading, science, logic, and technology!
STEM/STEAM? Common Core? PBL? VGD&D fits all these areas and can be made accessible to learners of all ages.
