You don't have to sign up to use the games.   My 2nd graders can make a game in one class and be ready to make a better one the next class.   If they want to save it they can do that with mom and dad. 

You can always create generic accounts.  

Enjoy,
Jon

I guessed that you might have...I mainly pasted this info up to save some folks the trip.

I wonder if school assigned email accounts could be used? These accounts we have here for under 13 are not able to send or receive from any source outside the school. I will look into that possibility
 as well.

It looks as though it might be a useful site.

yup, that's the first thing I read when I wondered if I could use it with my students.  Seems pretty clear that under 13's are not allowed to register with their own email address. Getting parent emails would be too cumbersome and I'm not prepared to fill anything out as someone's guardian.  I'm hoping they are working on a solution for schools.

Awesome site, thanks for the info!  Now to figure out how to get kids younger than 13 signed up, I just sent off an email asking about it so we'll see what they say.

Hi All,


New Gaming Program.  ad supported.  www.sploder.com    free and you can sign up, but you don't have to unless you want to save your games.   I'm using this a precursor to scratch web 2.0.   It teaches the basic steps to create a game, but from a child's perspective.

1)   Make a game/level  in Retro Arcade.
2)  Press play. (the character falls into oblivion.
3)  Retry, but add ground.  Have the characters try again ... lives
4)  Add gold coins, powerbars, obstacles,  monsters, tunnels, vehicles 
5)  Test Again... At this point kids have loaded every monster into the game that they can think of.  It becomes too hard. so the kids go back and redesign... delete monsters  to be a more fluid gaming experience
6)  Have others play your game and give critiques,  fix.
7) Have your teacher play the game.
8)  Try a game.

Have fun.
