Computer Science is not simply programming

MyMathVentures JR First Testing (Phase 2)

Phase 2 includes the actual game playing, post test and survey. Here the kids played all the five games and answered a post test and a survey regarding their experience with the Wii Remote. We allowed them to play again any of the games that they liked. A lot of them requested to play Fishrithmetic over and over again because, according to them, it’s almost like real fishing.

One of the things we observed during testing was that the kids liked games that didn’t involve using Wii remote as a mouse pointer. It was difficult for them at first to manipulate the Wii remote as a mouse pointer because it can only be moved by tilting. They became used to it after a while.
