I have been invited to help a couple of students make a video game. I would be working with 2-3 students aged 9-12 yrs.
The time frame is 10 x 2hr classes over 10 weeks, with plenty of preparation time on to get some assets ready.
Does any one know of an existing lesson plan for this kind of thing that I could use and contribute to; or ideas as to what the kids could achieve in this time frame? Type of game? 3d/2d? Should they make models, be given models and do programming? Do you have any experience with what kids this age respond well to?
I have a preference towards open source frameworks, but could be convinced to use a free commercial framework if you think there is enough benefit.
