The GamesCon is open to any P6/P7 learners who will work in a team of four.
Each team will typically have a teacher to supervise, and in the team we would suggest a mix of skills:
Graphic designer– someone who will design the characters, backgrounds and foregrounds and any other visual effects, including storyboards
Presenter – someone who will be confident in presenting the project to an audience, he/she may also design posters to demonstrate the work of the team and for the presentation create a Movie/PowerPoint/Prezi to really show off the work of the group.
Programmer – someone who has good coding skills and can bring the ideas and storyboards to life.
Document controller – someone to ensure all the document associated with the project are kept safely, this will include all the ideas, sketches and planning documents, scripts used in coding, testing plans and results. This person may want to create a blog to keep track of the project as it moves from ideas to finished product.
Researcher – someone who will be responsible for researching the ideas and ensuring the finished product is accurate in what it says/aims are.
There may be other roles that the teams will think of, which will mean some team members will be working in more than 1 role.
We would hope that the learners all work as a team, taking a shared responsibility for the finished product and learning from each other.
