In Game Design Studio teens play, analyze, and design games as a way to deeply engage in social and emotional learning in personal and meaningful ways. We use game design techniques to engage teens in thinking critically about—and experimenting with—the systems that impact their lives. Game Design Studio provides teens with the tools and support they need to be the drivers in their own learning. In this way, we recognize that teens are experts of their own experience. Workshop participants will join Game Design Studio and engage in the design experience we create with teens. Participants will collaborate to create to some core elements of a game using inspiration drawn from real-world data from teens who have participated previously in game design studio sessions. Participants will learn how to engage teens in design practices as a method for deep, authentic engagement between and amongst teens and adults.
