Quest - Write text adventure games and interactive stories

Quest - Write text adventure games and interactive stories | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Ricard Garcia's insight:
Interesting tool to foster creativity in storytelling and narrative... a bit complex but rewarding if teachers devote some time to learn the tool.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, October 23, 8:46 AM
Quest lets you make interactive story games. Text adventure games like Zork and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Gamebooks like the Choose Your Own Adventure and Fighting Fantasy books. You don't need to know how to program. All you need is a story to tell. Your game can be played anywhere. In a web browser, downloaded to a PC, or turned into an app.

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

Excelente propuesta educativa para enseñar a contar cuentos (y construir desde las palabras) más que una gramática abstracta sin contexto ni sustento. Va con lectura política incluida.

Great!

When I moved to activies like Fractured Fairytales, students took considerable care with spelling, punctuation, and grammar. They asked others and me to proofread.
