I’ll be auditioning this weekend for the upcoming TEDx conference in Jersey City. Saturday, June 29th from 2:30-5PM the Jersey City Art School will be hosting 2 minute presentations by artists, creative thinkers and educators. I plan to explain the game design curriculum I developed last year and the results of my classes. If accepted I’ll be creating a longer presentation for the TEDx Jersey City conference coming up in October.
For the past 6 Fridays I’ve been running an art and design program at HOLA Charter School in Hoboken. I taught a 3-week board game design class to grades k-3. I’ve written about the curriculum in April and last November. Each child received an 11″x 17″ piece of card stock with a pre-printed grid on it. The grids varied by grade; kindergarten drew on large squares while 3rd grade used small hexagons.
