Free Online Game Creator
By kylemawer This free downloadable game creator let’s you make your very own flash games. If you’ve ever fancied turning your hand to making a simple flash game or perhaps you’re looking for a summer course project to run with learners then Stencyl could be just the program for you. It’s free, online, simple to download and use and it’s available for either a PC or a Mac. After a quick look I settled on the RPG (role playing game) option. the vocabulary looked a bit richer and there’s potential to exploit a narrative within the game.It also looked quite easy to understand and explain just by looking at the opening shot (see below)Learners could be away from computers and draw, design and discuss the game. The game itself consists of a male or female game character (avatar) who can explore the game world (outdoors, which is pictured above, and indoors) collecting treasure, avoiding obstacles and fighting foes.

Zunal WebQuest Maker Élèves, créez vos jeux sérieux ! La "gamification" des expériences numériques est à la mode, et l'utilisation de jeux vidéos pour apprendre se fait tout doucement une place parmi les méthodes pédagogiques. Les enseignants cherchent donc des jeux adaptés à leurs objectifs et à leurs élèves. Tous espèrent que les éditeurs de jeux vidéos travaillent en collaboration avec eux, en adoptant les méthodes agiles de développement. Mais ces partenariats sont pour le moment difficiles à constituer et le coût d'une commande passée à un studio professionnel en fait reculer plus d'un, même quand la puissance publique participe au financement.

WorldImages - Home Platonic Solids and Plato's Theory of Everything The idea that all the constituents of nature consist of mixtures of a small number of "elements", and in particular the selection of the four elements of earth, water, air, and fire, is attributed to an earlier Greek philosopher Empedocles of Agrigentum (495-435 BC). Empedocles believed that although these elements (which he called "the roots of all things") could be mixed together in various proportions, the elements themselves were inviolable, and could never be changed. In contrast, one of the intriguing aspects of Plato's theory was that he believed it was possible for the subatomic particles to split up and re-combine into other kinds of atoms.
