Mission Maker

I appreciated a comment by TIm Price-Walker to my recent post about Alice, an interactive, 3D games programming application. Tim pointed me to
MissionMaker, developed out of a partnership between Immersive Education and the University of London (Knowledgelab) ‘MissionMaker’ is a prototype exploring how student game making can create learning opportunities. Currently 45 BETA trial sites are using Missionmaker in the UK and providing feedback – a release date is forecast for 2007.

I’ve had a brief look at this project and it looks really interesting – I’ll be keen to follow its progress. The MissonMaker Blog looks like a great place to follow the progress that is being made among the 45 schools involved.

I was also interested to note that Immersive Education are also the company behind Kar2ouche, a product that I’ve seen used in a number of NZ schools, and was the focus of a trial in 10 NZ schools during 2005.
