His latest creation is an amazing online video game called Sound Factory. It’s very hard for me to explain. Basically, you role-play a man in a factory who get to create music. That description, however, does not in any way do the game justice. There are a lot of instructions given in simple English, and students can email their final musical creation after they’ve finished the game. I also have listed the “Walkthrough” (answers) to the game on my website so students can doubly use it as a language development exercise.
In Sound Factory, and the next game I’ll describe, in addition to posting their musical creation students can write a description of it.
In A Break In The Road students can again create their own musical composition. It’s not quite a game, but I won’t even attempt to describe it. Check it out for yourself.
