I have been working with a teacher at Wakaaranga over the last couple of months and we have been planning and he has been implementing an open ended programming unit. The students have been given the task of developing a game that will teach other students about some of the facts surrounding the Treaty of Waitangi. Today was my first visit to the class and I was in ‘role.’ I had been invited into the class as “Mr Kingdom” an executive from EA Games who was to assess the appropriateness of the students plans, and embryonic games. I spent some time emphasising how projects such as theirs rely on having good plans and good teams, who all know what they have to do. I was really impressed with how the students reacted to my observations and “Mr Kingdom” will be returning in a fortnight to see just how well they have progressed.
