“In Scotland, we have ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ which includes game development as an experience and outcome at all stages of development. It also includes the principle of cross-curricular topics, which ties in well with game development. I have been trying to encourage this, and the idea that game development is an perfect cross-curricular topic which engages students and can encompass all sorts of subjects like ICT, computer science, math, physics, art, music, English, etc.”
