The Can You Create a Game Challenge is a framework to help educators bridge the gap between a student’s need to play, create and explore new digital tools while addressing state mandated standards for assessment. When carefully written, the Can You Create a Game Challenge uses a combination of game development/ designer constraints, player goals, narrative structures of a game and a student plan sheet for teachers to intentionally plan for and assess specific learning targets within student created digital games. In addition, students demonstrate understanding of skills, content knowledge, computation thinking, problem solving and creativity. Recent results of teacher creation and use of Can You Create a Game Challenge, the framework and classroom applications will be shared, as well as the 5E inquiry based instructional design model which can be use with existing games in the classroom.
