Design + Code + Culture = Play "Bonne Chance"

Held in the Link Classroom 6, West Campus, Duke University.  Learning languages through or with gaming is not a new in and and of itself.  What makes the "Bonne Chance" project unique is that we are trying to teach French through designing a game instead of simply playing it.  Through an interdisciplinary approach to modern software development, students from multiple academic bacgrounds with varying experience levels are able to work together in a cross-functional community.  Language and culture immersion is being explored in a new technological and educational realm by applying game-based learning mechanics to an elementary French language curriculum. Cary Staples, University of TN Knoxville and Sebastien Dubreil, Carnegie Mellon University, and their students from “The App Farm,” will discuss the project of the game.
