Mozilla Open Badges in Sugar on OLPC
As an RIT Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) team, we're tackling the challenge of implementing Mozilla Open Badges into activities on the XO Laptop of One Laptop Per Child (http://laptop.org). We are doing this in a modular way, so that our work can be integrated into other activities and games on the XO. As the XO's run a modified version of Fedora under the hood, we will be leveraging the same technology used by the FedBadges/FedMsg stack. This talk will also cover the social/educational benefits of gamification and game theory, as it relates to learning and student/individual motivation.

Creating 3D Racing Game Maps with GIMP and Inkscape
“Trigger Rally” is a 3d racing game that runs on old and new computers and has simple & fun gameplay. Also: creating new maps is easy and fun!
In this workshop, you will paint maps (or “levels”) to play in by creating heightmaps, vegetation density maps and color maps for the textures, as well as editing a definition file for the track.
All skill levels welcome: beginner, intermediate and advanced 2d art software users.
Please bring your notebook or netbook with GIMP and/or Inkscape installed. If you prefer another piece of 2d art software, feel free to use it instead. Ideally have http://trigger-rally.sf.net/ installed as well!
