This is a complete Scheme of Work designed to last seven lessons and covers how to create games using Kodu. I am also developing a series of tutorial videos which can be found here.

These resources are gread. I am just going to start planning lessons for Year 9 in two weeks time. Is it possible to have the resources using the keyboard.
I only have resources for using the Xbox controller I’m afraid as I don’t use the mouse and keyboard.
There is a really good video, using the keyboard, which I start my students off with. They then learn the basics of creating a simple game.
Great video, thanks for sharing.
Loving Kudo – my after school club are getting very into it…
Quick Question – struggling with camera modes – in your note see that suggests you can get all of these different camera modes…? I can only get first person… am I doing it wrong…
Third person- Players exist within the game world- which is less immersive. Feels like you are right behind the character or looking over their shoulder.
Top-Down- Player has a global view of the game world.
Side-scrolling- Fast paced; action is view from side-view camera; doesn’t show a lot about the world.
Isometric- Player has a global view.
Where are these?
Thank you so much
Notice on lesson 4 – you say show them an example of pong game…
I can’t find one in the community library – I know I could make one – but was wondering whether you had an example you wouldn’t mind sharing?
Are you at the conference tomorrow? Would so nice to meet you in person and thank you for the great resources shared
The resources are great and I plan to use them very soon. Would it be possible to provide the non pdf versions as I plan to edit them for my classes?
They are in the World Settings (far right of the bottom menu). It allows you to specify the time of camera setting and also set the camera’s starting position as well.
Hi David, here is an example of the pong game: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14333732/Kodu%20Games/Pong%20v01%2C%20by%20Nicki%20Maddams.Kodu
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to Friday’s conference as I was already out presenting at another one in Kent on the Thursday. Would have been nice to meet you! Maybe next year . . .
Hi, thanks for the comment. I’ve emailed you a link.
hello nicki – wonderful resources. would I also be able to obtain the editable versions for editing please?
Hi, editable versions can be found here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/14333732/Kodu%20SoW.zip
