S3 CfE courses

We’ve been running an S5/6 Games Development course (NPA) this year and it’s (so far) been very successful. Pupils are highly engaged, working hard and creating some cool games. We’re fairly happy with how it has went in this first year. One question that has arisen is about transition from S3 in the future. Given that we have games design mentioned specifically in Es and Os (while spreadsheet, database etc isn’t!) could we build a strand running from S1 to S6 in games design, giving scope for qualification at the earliest possible convenience?

We shall see…

I’m going to try and remember to record thoughts on games design and its place in our curriculum over the next few days. I know. Calm down.
