If you have played Pokemon Go, you already know something about location-based augmented reality (LBAR) games. Would you like to design and develop your own LBAR? Using the online TaleBlazer platform (with a Scratch-like coding environment), you will create and playtest mobile games of varying complexity for the Acera playground; your games will incorporate physical features of the play-space, both natural and human-made. At each stage of development, you and your classmates will be able to playtest each others’ games (on separate devices); both singleplayer and multiplayer modes are feasible. If technical resources allow, you may also translocate your game to be played in Davidson Park. Previous coding experience is not required, though some familiarity with Scratch is helpful.

Instructor: Danny Fain, Acera Computer Science & Game-Based Learning Specialist
