I have been looking at unity3D but I am very new at it. There is a free version which I am playing around with but would love to hear from people if they have used it in the classroom. I think it might be too technical for primary schools students. Anyway would appreciate any feedback.Unity – Game Engine Develop once, publish everywhere! Unity is the ultimate tool for video game development, architectural visualizations, and interactive media installations – publish to the web, Windows, OS X, Wii, Xbox 360, and iPhone with many more platforms to come.

  • Rebecca Vivian: + Emil Zankov  Have you had any experience with Unity3D?
  • Claire Adams: I know they use Unity quite successfully with Year 11s and 12s at Edward John Eyre High School in Whyalla. I’m keen to introduce it to my year 10s next year.
  • Emil Zankov: + Rebecca Vivian  Definitely have. We used to during our Certificate III course with the Academy of interactive entertainment. We have now switched to the Unreal Engine which is a lot friendly for students. It uses a ‘pathway’ ‘mindmap’ type style to program with.  I wouldn’t recommend Unity for primary:)
  • Simon Watts: + Emil Zankov  Cool. Thanks for the heads up.
