• Session proposal: students and gaming


    Benjy Cannon and Jeffrey Gruen present two games that are in different stages of completion with two different focuses, educational and recreational.  The two students offer a unique perspective on how plausible gaming assignments are along with their benefits, drawbacks, and requirements. The presentation will focus on both the technical and creative process of making a game given varying degrees of experience, how the process teaches students, and what games have to offer that no other medium can give.  The two students will also talk about how games can be assigned, the educational merits of gaming, how teachers can help out students making games, and what types of deadlines are plausible.
