Constructing Non-Technology Games

It was the first day, and we knew they were all itching to get onto the computers but we purposely held off for a few hours. Instead, we had them working on collaborative groups on designing an offline game, with rules and a story concept. We were happy to see how quickly and how easily they worked with each other on this project. There was laughter, compromise, changing of ideas and then construction of game boards and pieces going on throughout the room as the four groups of middle schoolers worked on an idea that could be transformed into a game.

Some views of the work being done:
