Seeds of KODU Game Creation

Seeds of KODU Game Creation

Teaching game narrative in Computing combines English skills with their coding ability. This sheet offers the nudge that Kodu gaming demands a seed of creativity just like a story. Make them think about characters and setting then create the worlds and the creatures that inhabit their visualisations. Plenty of discussion and then loads of fun. A writing frame is provided.
