Beat the Boredom – Game Design Elements
September 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - September 17, 2021 @ 3:00 pm
Learn essential elements of good video game design based on ACMI’s Game Builder lessons. Build your own video game to share and connect with other students across the state. Recommended for year levels 5 – 8.
Good game design involves bringing together a wide range of elements from different areas. Each session will focus on a different element including planning, character development, music and sound effects, and coding.
These sessions are based on ACMI’s online learning program Game Builder, a free resource available to teachers through the ACMI website.
Sessions will run daily between 2pm – 3pm from Monday 13 September to Friday 17 September. Sessions are as follows:
Session 1 (Mon 13 Sept): Storyboarding and character development
Session 2 (Tue 14 Sept): Character design and game elements design
Session 3 (Wed 15 Sept): Music and sound effects
Session 4 (Thu 16 Sept): Logic and coding
Session 5 (Fri 17 Sept): Present your games
Attendance at all 5 sessions is not required.
