Coder Arcade WB Spring 2020

MAKER ELECTRONICS/CODER:
Coder Arcade

In this course students will learn about the fundamentals of arcade game design using different tools. First, they will work on a tactile platform to build, collaborate, and tell stories through video game creation. Students use colored blocks to design their characters and settings to tell their own amazing gaming stories. We will then explore a web-based beginner-friendly code editor to create retro arcade games for the web and for dedicated hardware. Like scratch, it can be used as a block-based coding and can easily see the javascipt they are building. We will also explore Scratch and Python to code games as well. These tools will allow students to express their creativity in game design.

Welcome to YouTube, I'm sure you've heard of it. In this class, we'll be focusing on the content creator side. Just like your favorite YouTuber, we will make videos and learn the process of posting them online onto Geek Forest's new YouTube Channel! We can film short movies, do funny how-to videos, make advice videos, create animation using iPads, and even record video games for the channel! We will learn some basic techniques for filming movies; how to edit them together; how to title your video and describe it for people to easily find it; and how to animate for YouTube. This is an experimental and fun beginner class for all skill levels.
