Learning Experience Design Wednesday: “Let’s trade one gigantic french fry for one gigantic sea monster”
So last time I was about to start playing LUPO: The Space Adventure with my class of 4th graders. Yesterday we finished the game and students were really into it. Everyone working together and coming up with amazingly ridiculous solutions.
When my students were playing the game one surprising element of the game emerged. Different space crews started trading their resources and making pacts between different planets to get some much needed resources. For example a crew from Salt World made a deal with a crew from Sea World that went something like this:
5000 kg of salt and one gigantic french fry for 500 kg of fish and one gigantic sea monster.
Soon all the crews were making deals with each other.
bout that on my next blog post.
Until then: GAME ON AND LEVEL UP! Oh and remember to BE RIDICULOUS!
