Game Creation teaches Young People – New York and Wirral

Over on Boing Boing, my own favourite blog, I noticed that they are rather excited by a new school that engages young people by utilising the process of Games Design. Making games is almost as much fun (even more fun?) than playing them, and involves a range of different subjects from story-telling through text and image, to advanced mathematics, to design, to historical research. As well as the IT skills you would expect.

Boing Boing are excited by ‘Quest to learn’, a school in NYC.

‘Man, that sounds good enough to move to NYC for,’ says the chap at Boing Boing. Well he doesn’t need to, as long as he is living on the Wirral. ‘Over-the-water’, Onteca has been running a very similar course for dis-engaged young people for the last two years. It is going well.

Glad to see our American Cousins are catching up with the Innovative approaches we are developing in Merseyside.
