1.5 Gamestar is a Pathway to Programming

Beyond their value as entertainment media, digital games and game modification are currently key entry points for many young people into digital literacy, social communities, and tech-savvy identities.  Because of its emphasis on game design rather than computer programming, Gamestar is a great starter tool for students wanting to learn to make games. Once they have mastered game design’s core concepts and vocabulary, it will be easy for them to move into programming-oriented game design tools such as Game Maker, Stagecast Creator, or Scratch.
