ICT Year 6 observations – Game Maker

I had the opportunity to observe a Year 6 Technology lesson in the new ICT lab!

The teacher has allocated 1 hour per week for 8 weeks for this particular unit of work. The students are challenged with the task of developing an ICT Maze Game with Game Maker 7.0 Litehttp://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker

The students are required to plan a five level game with increasing difficulty and demonstrate understanding of the key aspects of a game and its associated objects.

The assessment task sheet, marking rubric and planning template pages were provided to the students in week one. They have ample opportunities to plan, edit, record changes and reflect on their improvements.

The concept of this assessment is the teacher’s ‘brainchild’ if you wish. The teacher has been integrating ICT into the classroom for years; however, this particular unit and assessment  facilitates independent work and 100% student engagement in learning.
