Tomorrow (June 12, 2012) I’ll be presenting at the Games, Learning, Society 8.0 conference, along with Nick Jaworski and Ben Smith.
We will be presenting in the Beefeaters hall at 3:30 p.m.
The topic of our presentation is a suite of games we’ve developed where you play the game by singing or playing an instrument. We believe this to be unusual in the arena of game based learning. Screenshot of the balloon game on the right.
Read the paper, “Developing games that can create real heroes on real guitars: using acoustic musical instruments and the human voice as controllers” here. The games are free, and can utilize built-in or external microphones. [Update: the paper has been published in the conference proceedings, which I’ve linked to in this post.]
Many thanks to the rest of the team members (Guy Garnett, Nick Jaworski, Catherine Schmidt-Jones, Ben Smith) and also to the University of Illinois, which funded this project through a Creative Research Award.
