Consolarium and 2DIY

Thank you to Alan Yeoman (our man in Scotland) for this post.

2DIY TrainingEarlier this month 2Simple was delighted to support a group of more than 30 teachers and advisers from across Scotland who got together to take a closer look at 2DIY.  The event, organised by Derek Robertson and Brian McLaren from Learning and Teaching Scotland , will be part of the ongoing work of the Consolarium as schools and pupils take on   Games Design and implement the Curriculum for Excellence.

During their time together they explored the full possibilities of 2DIY, creating multi level games and experimenting with altering the Action Script of the various characters in their games.  A strong emphasis was put on sharing and many of those involved left with plans to collaborate with other schools on games design and for pupils to work together to produce multi level games.2DIY Training
