A Killer App for Learning Games… Google Slides
We have been experimenting with our Code Master coding game, using Google Slides we have reformulated the play medium from cardboard to graphic tokens that slide across a screen, included youtube videos that teach how to play and describe the skills being learned.
We are testing the Code Master project now. If this works, there is a big opportunity waiting. Next step is to figure out what other game types this program can support, and what types are not appropriate. As a first pass, here is a list of 17 Google Slide Learning Games that possibly could work within Slides.
