Digital creativity

Workshop-Game design with Scratch

Game design 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
Students learn to use computers to communicate. This allows them to translate topics as they perceive them through a digital tool. They gain some knowledge about and appreciation of aspects of their environment. In addition, they acquire game design skills and techniques in an exploratory phase. They also learn to interact with new media, such as computers, tablets and iPads. Pupils learn to look differently at their environment, as well as improving their sensory perceptions.
