2013 Healthivores Video Game Contest – Simple and Rewarding Approach to Student Game Design

Looking for something a little different to teach digital literacy skills?  Maybe you have some teachers in your school who would like to use these lessons or students who would like to participate?  I was thrilled that the organizers were reaching out to librarians to get the word out on this project.  Jessica Gillis

Are you a teacher with zero video game design experience? NO PROBLEM! This year’s Healthivores Video Game Contest has begun and its easier than you think.  Check out the included Lesson Plan that will take teachers, even those with zero game design experience, step-by-step through the process of teaching your students to design games.  You will have your students completing their video games in less than 4 weeks.  This year we have added Technology, Science and Math focused Lesson Plan options to the already popular Nutrition and Fitness Lesson Plan.  Each winning team will receive one laptop for the teacher, one for the school and one for each student on the team (See 2012 Winners here). Deadline for entry is March 31, 2013 (allow 4 weeks for completion of Lesson Plan).  Get started now at the Healthivores Video Game Contest homepage! - Green Ribbon Schools
