TitleAn Innovative Approach to Collaborative Game Design
Presenter(s)Carrie Cole and Sarah Buchan
TimeThursday, October 11, 3:00p-4:00p
LocationLake Michigan
DescriptionA common issue teams encounter when designing educational games is finding a balance of learning and fun. In the absence of fun, players do not engage. In the absence of learning, the product fails to deliver on its intended outcome. To solve this, Age of Learning has built tension into the design process by pairing curriculum experts with game designers to build engaging and effective games. In this presentation, a Curriculum Specialist and a Game Designer from Age of Learning will dissect several live Mastering Math games to provide insight into how this collaboration works in the industry.
