interview with derek braman explorer elementary kodu club
Interview with Derek Braman, Explorer ElementaryKodu Club
  • What are the positive reactions from the students?
  • “Just about everything they had to say about the program was positive. They loved how they were able to take their ideas and turn it into their own games and were then able to have other students play their games and get feedback. They were also excited about looking at other people’s games and how they could “borrow” ideas from them to add to their story and game.”
  • What are the negative reactions from the students?
  • “About the only negative aspect we heard was that they wanted to take their game with them when they were done (something that seems to be an option now after feedback to Microsoft). Some also wanted more time and didn’t want to be done so “quickly” after seven weeks.”
  • How can Kodu be integrated into classroom curriculum?
  • “We have used it in the realm of language arts and writing to ‘publish’ our stories in a different way, but the program also has potential for use in areas of math, specifically sequencing, in science, by using the scientific method to try to achieve certain elements of the games or stories.”
