Playpower Workshop in India

Matt Kam, my collaborator on the 2 week workshop in India, just sent me this picture. Cool!

The students really had a lot of fun learning how to design educational games, both for the $10 computer and for low cost mobile phones. I combined IDEO's Human Centered Design Toolkit with some other methods to help students brainstorm and develop their ideas. Then, students learned to program the $10 computer with help from remote lectures by Don Miller and Noah Vawter, along with the Playpower Programming Tutorials. It's hard to summarize everything we did over the course of the workshop, but here's a shot of the project wall, where we put all our notes...

PS. Kishan published the code that we generated at the workshop. We're still working hard to finish the games, so drop me a line if you'd like to help!
