It was really great to work with the students this week. I was very blown away by how developed and possible some ideas were that the students came up with. After having missed class the week prior, it was nice to see our class was on the same wavelength (pun intended) in developing choose your own adventure games. I thought it was interesting that working with the students seemed to show the kids wanted even more interaction and active participation. One concept that I was particularly drawn to was the use of the dome as generating an environment that could be controlled by players to produce a happy and healthy environment or a toxic one. I’m excited this week to maybe take a few of the ideas this week and apply them to games that maybe are not as technological. I also love the idea put forth about a scavenger hunt. Maybe there is a way to develop that into an app or simply a game to be used at the day of the event.
