How I Use It
I would use this product to have students build their own game as a tech component and then use meta-cognition to reflect on the steps they took to complete their game and also the struggles they encountered and how they overcame their hurdles.
My Take
I think this product is engaging and provides an opportunity to gain skills through interests and creativity.
