Impact Gamers have partnered with CityFibre for an exciting new pilot of the “Level Up!” a 6 week workshop for schools and groups using the game making process to talk about emotional well-being.
Teaching game making while bringing tools and language to help young people build language and confidence in expressing emotional well-being.
Designed to be delivered weekly over 6 weeks to a class of 30 primary students or small group of 8 higher need young people.
The purpose of this short course is to introduce pupils to express their emotions whilst also developing their computational thinking, developing their digital literacy and use their creativity to understand and change the world
Covering 50% of the KS2 ICT curriculum
Key stage 2 Pupils should be taught to:
design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs
Get your class/group to make a game on a topic of your choice
Choose a topic that fits other work you group are undertaking, or allow them free choice.
Award winning mentoring support
Winner of the 2018 BAFTA Young Games Designer Mentor award we use this course to help students vocalise emotional need and use game language to aid new ways of them expressing their wellbeing.
