NerdStalker: "We came across a great game recently that recaptures your creativity in writing and gamifies it."
Super cool trandsmedia story idea that involves getting kids to tell stories in a gamafied way through an app. I'm sure kids will get creative with this.
Are you sure you want to delete this scoop?
Going to use this with my 8th graders as a writing warm up activity. Many of my students get frustrated writing longer pieces, this will be a way to write short meaningful text in a game format. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.
Great writing 'game' for kids!....er, and others
Chris Kohler: "If you're at all familiar with the success of Skylanders, you won't be too surprised by Disney's latest gaming initiative."
I wouldn't be surprised if Disney pulls off this multi-story world game and makes millions.
It's called Infinity and, if Skylanders is anything to go by, we're going to be hearing a lot about it in the next few months. Must say, I don't mind ... it looks pretty cool. It combines characters from multiple Disney storyworlds into a single game with the potential to mix and match them in levels of your own creation. John Lasseter has described it as “a tool chest for creativity".
