This week in EDTECH 564, we continued working on an instructional unit proposal. I chose to do my proposal on the initial unit in my Video Game Design course. In this unit, students begin by playing a series of games. Then they complete an Aurasma scavenger hunt throughout the school, finding and figuring clues as they go. There is a quick quiz app that students can review what they are learning about game components (character, setting, control, etc.) Finally, students create posters defining/describing the components they have learned about.
For some reason, I was thinking this was our final project for the class and I was thinking I would have time to actually build out some of the materials for this unit as I really would like to use it in the classroom. Turns out, I was wrong and we are moving on next week. I feel like if I had caught this earlier, I might have spent more time building up my proposal document.
