Construct 2 used in European science project (iTEC)

For educators around the world who use Construct 2 in classrooms

Post » Wed Oct 01, 2014 11:16 pm

The class I was teaching last year participated in the European project iTEC, where we looked at new ways to learn in the future classroom. iTEC is a project by European schoolnet, which is the network of 31 European Ministries of Education.

We participated in both cycle 4 and 5 (there were 5 cycles in total) with games and gamification to learn subjects, and I choosed to use Construct 2 for development. In the final cycle (last year) the students even got to make some demo games, which impressed the researchers.

Here you can read a piece about it (in Norwegian, so use Google translate): https://iktipraksis.iktsenteret.no/blogg/utvikling-av-l%C3%A6ringsspill-ved-nord-gudbrandsdal-vgs

You can also find the games in the bottom of the article, and they are all in english. Keep in mind that this was only done in a short time span of the whole school year.

Yeah, I really hope to make an impact with this project and be able to tell as many teachers as possible about the educational possibilities of this awesome software.

And thanks for the link. Google seems to be able to translate it very good from norwegian to english.

Cool especially like the car simulator.

Another teacher posted their students C2 work too: viewtopic.php?f=149&t=109069

Great, good to see Construct 2 being used for education! Was there any feedback about Construct 2? I'd be curious to hear about it if any.

That's very good to know, Construct 2 is a very good game development tool for hobbyists and enthusiasts, it's very easy to learn and use, albeit I still have a small problem with what I want to do but good to know that Construct 2 is been used in schools, colleagues and places of education and I see a prosperous future for this program imo.

Already a bit early in that matter, as the process of promoting my students work and the researchers finding. I will surely mention and encourage the use of Construct 2 as a platform in schools. I might send you guys an e-mail later with the results of this project if interested.

I also have a lot of ideas for improvements for the use of Construct 2 in education. I will keep you posted later when all data is collected. I think education could become a big market for you, and I would like to see Construct 2 being used in a bigger scale, as I really enjoy using it.
