Teach kids how to make games

GGJ NEXT® supports you with our effective and engaging curriculum videos to teach basic concepts in game development and provide you with lesson plans and projects for you to take into your classroom and students.

Even if you have never taught game making or game design before, we want to give you the tools to empower you to help kids in your classroom or community to be able to explore their creative thinking and problem-solving skills through games.

At GGJ® we love jamming, and see it is a powerful way to develop skills and confidence with game making. We also think it is really important to have some preparation prior to jumping into a jam. That is why we are recommending that jam hosts either hold workshops or incorporate some sort of classes to prepare the young creators for making games.

At GGJ NEXT we want to help by providing educators and hosts with a curriculum, lesson plans and projects to help get students ready for a positive jam experience, and have established a Curriculum for fellow educators, to give you enough of an understanding to teach basic game making and design concepts to your students.
