By now you should have started at least one of your projects (and hopefully you’re close to finishing). Don’t forget to complete your documentation for each project as you are working on it or as soon as you are finished. Go ahead and take a moment to share what you are all working on within your groups.

Today I have a few tips for the puzzles and gaming project:
Puzzles and Gaming – There are many options for this project. Some people have chosen to locate 5-7 games that require the user to show creativity and they are writing reviews for each game. To turn this in you’d probably want to create a webpage just for this assignment, then insert an image of the game and a short 5-8 sentence review. If you need help with inserting images of the games, let me know. You might be interested in the idea of gamification – if so, this would be a great topic to explore for this project. Some of you might be interested in exploring the games, puzzles, and learning centers that teachers are posting on Pinterest. No matter which project you’ve chosen, make sure to check its page on the Creativity Contract website to ensure you are meeting all of the requirements. Mashable had an article about Life of George which is a Lego game. I also recommend checking out the G4TV’s Top 100 Video Games of All Time.
Here’s the number one game:
1. This Friday is a workday, meaning you can choose to work on your project from home or any lab on campus. I plan to be in the lab to support you guys. If you have any missing assignments (check your Google Drive), you need to come to class Friday so I can support your progress.
2. Continue working on your projects. All project work and documentation is due on Friday, March 29 at the beginning of class. You’ll want to be more than halfway through by the end of this week. If you are planning to use your late pass, all projects will be due on Monday, April 1 at the beginning of class.
