  • 4. IDT 565 Arturo Pelayo, ID Final Project Proposal Breakaway Design House, LLC. Executive Summary: Breakaway Design House, LLC bids a $216.00, comprehensive Instructional Game Design project geared for the Elementary Education Market to provide an educational product whose objective is to aid in the development of skills such as word spelling and computer typing. “The Octopus Spelling Game” is agile, dynamic and responsive to future educational needs by supporting cross-platform design. The Adobe Flash Interactive self-paced Instructional Game will be developed in a course of six weeks beginning on March 12th, 2007 and ending on April 27th, 2007. Company Background: Breakaway Design House, LLC. is an Instructional Game Design company specializing in services and learning solutions for the education sector. For over a decade, Breakaway Design House has been spearheading the synergy of technology, education and design. Our holistic approach provides our clients best-of-breed solutions regardless of size.

  • 5. IDT 565 Arturo Pelayo, ID Final Project Proposal Breakaway Design House, LLC. Focus The focus is the design, development and deployment of an instructional game called “The Octopus Spelling Game”. The self- paced instructional game shall allow learners to develop the skill of typing on a computer, and learn how to spell words correctly. The above shall be achieved by the development of an Adobe Flash project that shall use a lightweight user interface designed for children on K1-K4 grades. The Adobe Flash project shall be designed for accessibility via web through a flash plug-in and as a downloadable Windows XP [SP2] and Mac OS X (10.4) Operating Systems. Breakaway Design House will develop a customizable instructional game that will enable content facilitators to either enable learners to practice their spelling and typing skills (by choosing a built-in array of words), or to specify their own words they want learners to practice according to standards set by their particular school regulations. The flexibility of the Instructional Delivery method shall also be supported with effective, engaging and interactive content. The instructional game will employ a cartoon user interface with a theme based on the underwater world. An octopus shall be the 2
  • 6. IDT 565 Arturo Pelayo, ID Final Project Proposal Breakaway Design House, LLC. main character of the game and it will be through the Octopus’ tentacles that words will be delivered on the screen. Learners will be evaluated on mastery by either correctly dragging words from each tentacle into a register in the correct spelling order or by typing the word manually. Immediate remediation shall be provided to the learner via messages displayed on the screen that shall act as cognitive cues. A minimum of five words will be set by default on the instructional game, while there will be a maximum of 15 words to input along with the corresponding hints and written descriptions. Needs Assessment: Breakaway Design House, LLC. has researched the instructional game market and has found that there are very few instructional games that are effective in teaching children of young ages (K1-K3) how to type on a computer keyboard with the intent of teaching them new words while having fun. “The Octopus Spelling Game” has no comparison in the market as it can be customized by facilitators with their own words. It is an Adobe Flash based game that can be deployed on the web, on PC and MAC platforms. “The Octopus Spelling Game” has no competition and when released, will be the market leader in its sector. The only available software from competition has been described by education 3
  • 7. IDT 565 Arturo Pelayo, ID Final Project Proposal Breakaway Design House, LLC. administrator costumers “as a licensing headache”. “The Octopus Spelling Game” has no comparison in the market and it can readily become a success. Breakaway Design House, LLC. has developed innovative site licensing agreements that will only require a one- time per-school fee for the particular version purchased. Breakaway Design House, LLC. will harness the power of the internet as an instructional delivery mechanism to provide costumers worldwide of this product via its servers. Immediate downloads shall be initiated and electronic keys shall also be generated for customer purchases. Qualifications: Breakaway Design House, LLC. will dedicate our Principal Instructional Designer, Arturo Pelayo, as the full-time Project Manager for the instructional game. Arturo Pelayo, Principal Instructional Designer . • Arturo carries over a decade of experience in several web technology areas. From HTML to “Web 2.0” projects, Arturo has successfully secured over 25 million dollars on funding from the National Science Foundation for several educational projects. 4
  • 8. IDT 565 Arturo Pelayo, ID Final Project Proposal Breakaway Design House, LLC. Project Deliverables: Breakaway Design House, LLC. will develop “The Octopus Spelling Game”, under the leadership of Arturo Pelayo, Project Manager & Principal Instructional Designer. This instructional game shall include a total of five predefined words that will be delivered as standard with the product. The facilitator or instructor will be capable to set-up the game to have as many words as s/he finds fit for the learner to gain mastery. The learner will achieve mastery of spelling words on screen. The learner will gain mastery of computer keyboard typing. The learner shall gain such mastery within a one hour period for 10 words provided. The learner shall be able to explore and have fun with the interface and hidden ‘Easter eggs’ such as crabs hiding in the sand, giggling of octopus moving around coral, creating bubbles on the background, etc. “The Octopus Spelling Game” shall provide an innovative interface that will be exciting and engaging for learners. The Instructional Game will require minimum investment on developers as it will be designed using the best visual literacy guidelines. The scalability of the game can be conceived and further modules and scenarios based on the same aquatic theme can provide a considerable lifecycle of the product and can aid to retain leadership in the 5
  • 9. IDT 565 Arturo Pelayo, ID Final Project Proposal Breakaway Design House, LLC. instructional game market. The nature of an elegant user interface shall provide a minimum need for high-end hardware and there are no expectations to have technical difficulties nor to devise a larger investment in customer support services or internet collocation infrastructure. Overview of Development Process: Overview of Approach to be Taken: Breakaway Design House, LLC. will develop “The Octopus Spelling Game”, under the full-time leadership of Arturo Pelayo, Project Manager & Principal Instructional Designer.
