Video Game Programmers Learn to "Pitch"
Nikirk, Martin
Tech Directions, v67 n4 p19-22 Nov 2007
New video and computer game ideas reach the stage of production by a company when they are "pitched" by game developers to game publishers. Learning how to "pitch" technology products has great educational value for technology education students. In this article, the author shares his experience with helping his students master the art of the technical product pitch. The author was responsible for creating Maryland's first high school game development and animation pilot program at Washington County Technical High School. In this program, students gain real-world experience by pitching computer game ideas to business and industry partners who serve on a pitch panel. (Contains 2 tables and 3 resources.)
