video game homeschool

May 5, 2016

As usual, I haven’t blogged in ages. What has called me back here to write this little blurb? Summer plans, of course! I am about ready for a change in pace around here.

Normally we don’t do any schooly activities during June and July other than summer reading. I decided to offer the kid some structured activities this summer though but different from how we “do school” the rest of the year. The major project for the six weeks sandwiched between camps will be Video Game HomeSchool.

Topics to include history of video game tech, game art/story appreciation, gaming jobs, diy video games, gamer self-care, and Zelda. We’ll watch a video-game related movie each week and go on field trips including to the local vintage arcade and cosplay event at the mall.

I am looking forward to delving into this interest with the kid who aspires to be a professional gamer; I imagine she’ll really school me.
