Bloxels is an educational tool used for ages eight and up. The basis of this tool is to allow students to create a platformer video game using pixel blocks. You can create pixel art, terrain layouts , animations, backgrounds, and even own characters for the game. Believe it or not, this kind of video game can teach your students to practice reading, writing, digital literacy, creative expression and different forms of narrative. Come unleash the inner gamer in you!
