How I Use It
Gamestar Mechanic is a great tool to introduce students to game designing. I find that some of the students who struggle in the core subject areas respond well to this program. Problem solving is a big part of the quest and motivates the students to find answers. Students who are not really problem solvers struggle with this program, but the quest itself motivates them to continue. They get very excited when other students play their games and comment on them.
Great tool to introduce game design and the importance of problem solving.
