Kids are amazing when we put cool technology in their hands and provide an engaging learning environment. Anyone who has seen a kid play minecraft knows exactly what I mean! . This year I received funding through a Donors Choose Grant for a project that would provide additional opportunities for my students to take charge of their learning. With the funding, we were able to purchase an Xbox One, Disney Infinity, the Ouya console, Raspberry Pi, and four MakeyMakey kits. These tools were added as extension activities in my Video Game Design and Development class. In this presentation I will share highlights of this project and the choice based learning environment that allows students to carve their own path.
