Description:In this innovative summer course and workshop, participants will be introduced to the process of designing and developing an educational game application for mobile devices (i.e. iPhone, iPad, and iTouch). Students will move from playing computer games, to examining the design of existing games, to collaborating with their peers in designing their own games. To accomplish this they will move from beginner level design tools (such as Gamestar Mechanic) to tools which will enable them to build games for mobile devices such as the iTouch, iPad, etc. (Game Salad). NOTE: No prior programming experience required.
Instructor: Dr. Roberto Joseph. Associate Professor, Hofstra University. One of Dr. Joseph’s specialties is the integration of technology in the classroom, with particularly focus on game design, and on issues of equity in student use and access of technology. He writes and consults on these critical 21st century topics.
