“This free app for Mac and PC lets you bring together images, video, music, text and web grabs on virtual pages, making creative writing interactive and fun. It is based on my own multimedia-fuelled writing process, bringing the writing process alive for people who think visually, interactively and aurally, as well as textually.”

This app is so easy to use – you can easily draw, embed images and video…add text, all from a virtual desktop that makes sense. Give it a try!

Gamestar Mechanic is an online game that helps you learn the principles of good game design.

At first, you go on a Quest. You play games and fix them and earn different characters to use
in your own game. When you are done with the Quest you go to the Workshop and design your very own game. Then you can publish it for other kids to play and you can play games other kids have designed.
