Teacher Videos!

We’ve started a new YouTube channel for Gamestar Mechanic.  I’ve been busy making our first two videos for teachers.  One video describes the Iterative Design Process of creating a game, and how to facilitate this process in the classroom.  We often encounter teachers who doubt their skills when it comes to gaming and “tech stuff.”  This video explains how you don’t need to be a super tech savvy teacher to still be a great facilitator of kids learning through game design.

The second video is all about Class Projects, a feature in Gamestar where you can assign game design challenges as assignments (or even homework!) to your class.

Check out these videos here!  Also, let me know if you have any topics you’d like to see in a tutorial video.  You can comment on this post, or email me at

Enjoy viewing!
