Can Games Help Players Learn How to Code?

For my final project I looked at three commercial games that rely heavily on programming language as part of their gameplay. The three games are “Shenzen I/O”, “else heart.break()”, and “Screeps”. I do so taking on the role of a student pursuing a personalized learning project and showing how playing these games can fulfil and demonstrate mastery of many technology standards. In particular, I will evaluate the games’ fulfilment of several high school level Massachusetts state technology and programming standards. To begin, I thought I’d take a deeper look into the standards and their expectations to better translate their application within the games.

  1. Nick, that's one of the best PowToon's I've ever seen! You have a radio voice. Cool project, too.
