Machinarium is available as an Android or iPad app and as a paid download for Mac and PC, but you can get quite a lot of mileage out of the free version in the classroom. Suggestions include:
- prediction – students use screenshots to predict what they think is going to happen in the demo
- running dictation – students relay sections of a walkthrough to the student controlling the game
- live listening – students listen and follow instructions to complete the demo
- creative writing – students write a story based on what happens in the demo
If you’ve used Machinarium with your students, tell us what you did and how it went down with them.
