Teach your children programming: GameKit
« on: August 08, 2011, 09:21:07 AM »
To cover high-level topics like computer graphics, artificial intelligence, user interfaces, event driven programming, and object oriented programming, game programming is a natural motivating example.  Game programming is one of the most difficult software fields, however.  I designed GameKit as a full integrated development environment for new programmers to play with high level game programming concepts without needing to know about C++ or OpenGL.  We prototyped GameKit during the class and performed more work later with two students who expressed continuing interest in games.
