Abstract
An ever-growing body of scholarly work has supported the assertion that the act of designing and building projects leads children to to learn in powerful ways in ways that they perceive to be authentic and meaningful; one such approach is through constructionism, which involves learning by building. These ideas can be applied in the classroom through the building of PowerPoint games.
