Digital creativity



Workshop-Game design with Scratch PO

Scratch

Children these days love playing computer games. For children, this is a very attractive activity as it allows them to express their creativity and imagination. Besides playing computer games, it is also possible to build them yourself.
In this workshop, students create a simple computer game using the free programme Scratch. Children are going to invent their own game: will it be a strategy game or a platform game? They also have to think about the main players, opponents, attributes and design of the game. Using the programme Scratch, they can shape and move everything themselves. In this fun workshop, the children's imagination is stimulated and they learn a lot about computer game programming.

Key objectives

They acquire some knowledge about, and gain an appreciation for, aspects of their environment. Also, in an exploratory phase, they acquire knowledge about new technologies such as computer games. They also learn to deal with new media, such as tablets and iPads. The pupils learn to look differently at their environment, as well as improving their sensory perception.
