Learning through Game Design

While much educational research often focuses on what people learn through playing digital games, in this video Professor Jennifer Jenson explores what and how people learn through making games.

Here, the art and practice of game design is presented as something that anyone – at any age – can engage, opening up learning vistas that integrate creative and critical processes, as well as coding literacies and computational thinking.

Learning Through Making Games

Jennifer Jenson, York University

Learning Through Game Design

In this introduction to the module, Jennifer Jenson connects the art of game design to learning, computational thinking, and critical design and coding literacies. In social and cultural worlds increasingly shaped by digital code, learning through game unites play, pleasure and self-directed learning with coding and computational literacies. And at the day, learners have an digital game – of their own design –  to show for it.
