Game Maker Gurus
Why Game Maker? Making games with Game Maker is a lot of fun and allows you
to create professional looking games within very little time. Do you want to
gain confidence in programming skills, graphics, music and create engaging
gameplay to help your students (and you) showcase your talents?
VITTA and experienced teacher Nat Bradshaw present a practical session of
learning where you will explore Game Maker in order to learn, inspire and
engage. This workshop will assume no prior knowledge but will introduce any
teacher with previous experience to some new techniques. Game Maker's simple
drag and drop interface is friendly enough to use with as young as Year 3,
but through its powerful scripting language, it is suitable right up to Year
12 and beyond.
