Sometimes I stumble upon an awesome teacher blog that I can’t resist sharing. From the Desk of Mr. Walters is the blog of a teacher/designer/gamer who shares many insights about his work with gaming, gamification, and game-based learning in the classroom. In this particular post, Mr. Walters shares a lesson plan on designing story games in Gamestar Mechanic. My favorite quote from this post is:
“To develop even a simple game, a student must act as sociotechnical engineer, thinking about how people will interact with a system and how said systems shape both competitive and collaborative social interaction. This is the 21st Century Story Tellers Art. This is where Liberal Arts meets STEM.”
Mr. Walters totally gets it! Enjoy his blog.
