E202 – Makerspaces and Intellectual Property-A Creative Practicum

Tuesday, April 8, 2014
11:30 AM – 12:15 PM
, Media Specialist (School Librarian), Theodore G. Davis Middle School

The Game Design and Programming Club at Davis Middle School in Maryland is an after-school club that creates an environment of creativity and friendship through the active roles taken by its members as they design, create, edit, and distribute 2-D video games. Led by the school librarian, this club extends the use of the technology resources of the media center as the middle school students get practical experience with intellectual property. Using the program Game Maker as the creative environment, informal instruction is combined with focused discussion on the creation of playable mini-computer games. Intellectual property is reinforced through club policies that allow club members to only use the material they create as pieces of their games (images, sound, story-line, etc.). With their own work as a focus, presentations are given that help the students explore copyright, fair use in terms of their own work, and the Creative Commons.
