Media literacy
Movie Maker lets kids help Buster fix a short movie he created. They need to make the movie happier, sadder, funnier, scarier, or more exciting, depending on Buster's wishes. Kids access a special editing screen that allows them to change the sights and sounds in three scenes, and the overall soundtrack. This game offers kids an opportunity to experiment with media production, and empowers them to make genuine choices that will affect the media they are creating. The goal is to teach kids that all media are constructed, and that different choices made by the media creators have different (emotional) impacts on them as media consumers.
