LittleBigEducation

February 26, 2011

Apparently you can get LittleBigPlanet2 for a special price if you work in education.  I think this is a great tool for creating all sorts of content and playing with ideas.  Well worth checking out.

If you are reading this and thinking ‘what is LittleBigPlanet?’ Here’s the info:

Since its release two years ago, LittleBIGPlanet has sold over 4 million copies, received widespread critical acclaim and numerous awards including the BAFTA Children’s Award in 2009. It won in 8 categories out of 10 nominations at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) including Outstanding Innovation in Gaming and was judged Family Game of the Year, Console Game of the Year and Overall Game of the Year. LittleBigPlanet was also given the Award for Artistic Achievement at the 5th British Academy Video Games Awards and was given the awards for Best New Debut, Best Game Design, Best Technology, and the Innovation Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards.

The sequel, LittleBIGPlanet 2 (LBP2), boasts 40 new story levels across six themes which can be played alone or with friends either offline or online. It promises to add bundles of new content, as well as backwards compatibility with DLC and millions of free custom-made levels from the original.

Oh, and the link has some great examples of LBP in action being used for education…
