Make My Game

Make My Game! – This is the new, experimental session of the year. You suggest the topic, audience, setting, and any other important details or constraints, and a group of random ARISers to jam on it for an hour. We all can learn about the design process, and about synthesizing what we think we know about the subject area, AR, and ARIS, learning much more along the way.

This time, we will be following a suggestion set by ARIS vetran Craig Brumwell, relating to some themes in history he's interested in teaching. Chris H will facilitate.

Though Poppies Grow is a is a 4 episode history game where middle and secondary school students on educational tours to Europe use ARIS and Siftr to learn about the First World War. The first episode on local recruitment has two authoring challenges: a physical examination puzzle and a marching activity using ARIS factories. Join us in this one-hour mini-jam to see what different approaches to these problems emerge.
