This is a sister competition to the UK Kodu Kup and gives a chance for schools in Scotland to participate in the UK Kodu Kup and avoid timing issues around the different term times. So if you are in Scotland, join McKodu in Kodu Kup Scotland.
Organised and run by David Renton , one of our Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts in Scotland.
The Kodu Kup Scotland is open to anyone from a Scottish school aged between seven and fourteen. Children must be entered as a team of three, forming a mini “game studio”. Follow @KoduKup on Twitter or ‘Like’ us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/KoduKup) to receive regular updates, including dates of free training sessions! You can download Kodu Game Lab and other useful resources from www.kodugamelab.com
What Should be Submitted? Teachers should enter their pupils’ games using the Microsoft Partners in Learning website www.pil-network.com and e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org once they have uploaded them.
Two files will need to be submitted per team; these include the game itself along with the completed documentation created using the template provided.
The closing date for all entries is Friday 30th May.
About the Games There is no specific theme or audience for the game but it must have a clear storyline, and well thought out characters with a detailed playing environment. Schools may wish to link this to current literacy projects already taking place.
Judging The top ten teams will be invited to the College Development Network in Stirling on the 16th of June and given the opportunity to present their games to a panel of experts from education and the games industry.
Please contact David Renton on Twitter @drenton72 or email email@example.com with any questions.
