humanities.games simplifies digital game creation! Choose a minigame template, design custom art and text, and create an original and unique educational game.
Examples could include:
humanitites.games is designed to be as accessible as possible. That means no coding is required!
This approach empowers students to think about their humanities content in a new way, and allows those on both sides of the digital divide to create.
Students complete paper packets with text and sketches, based on the humanities subject they are studying.
Once built, their games stand as an example of their understanding of course material, and are an opportunity for peers to engage with the same content in a novel way.
For groups with less access to digital technology, we are building a mobile app that can use game art captured with a smartphone camera.
Soon a group leader will snap a few photos of a student's work, type in their text, and hand them back the phone to play their own creation!
Our minigames could be used in all areas of the humanities, and the student act of building a game to demonstrate a concept could have powerful experiential learning benefits.
