Demo of Studio K: Tools for Game Design and Computational Thinking


People need to develop good intuitions about how computation operates within domains of practice (from social software to personalized medicine applications) and how to harness the computer’s creative potential. Studio K provides an opportunity for young people to develop such computational ways of thinking by designing videogames as part of a virtual studio internship. In this demonstration, we will explore the social and performance feedback mechanisms being designed in Studio K to support the development of game design expertise and computational thinking. Pilot study data will supplement the discussion.
