Download Bloxels Lesson Plans

 

In 2014 our team worked closely with the Grand Center Arts Academy (GCAA) to create the following lesson plans built around the Design Thinking Process made popular by the Stanford Design School. The teacher at GCAA, Andrew Goodin, started experimenting by using our game building tools to teach his students design thinking, and later volunteered to create these lesson plans to share with others.
 

These continue to be adapted and modified to support Bloxels.


Two examples are available for FREE download below and all are available in our new EDU Handbook, which also comes with every order of a 5 Pack or multiple thereof.
