Kanazawa JALT:

Do It Yourself! Games From the 100 yen Shop

Date: Sunday, March 18th, 2001 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: Chris Hunt, JALT Teaching Children SIG

Games are an essential element in the process of helping children acquire a second language. Yet commercially produced games are notoriously expensive and almost exclusively competitive. 100 yen shops, found throughout Japan, offer an exciting resource for the would be game designer. In this workshop the presenter will demonstrate how to design and evaluate co-operative games using materials which cost next to nothing. Participants will create their own games and learn the "language" of games.

Organization: Kanazawa Chapter of the Japan Association for Language Teaching (Kanazawa JALT)

Cost: free

Venue: Shakai Kyoiku Center, 3-2-15 Honda-machi

Location: Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan
