Tektoma - Game tutorials for kids

(Sorry for the repeat post!)
Are your kids into technology? Would you like for them to be?  Tektoma is an interactive website that is full of tutorials (video teachings) that teach people to make games from scratch. 

Is your child interested in Roblox? If so, he very well may like Tektoma!

From Tektoma:
Computer competency is essential for the employees of tomorrow. Our children will be creators of technology, and not just consumers. Learning game programming teaches children many valuable skills, including:

• Logic
• Creative problem solving
• Project management
• Trial and error
• Learning from mistakes
• Algebra and geometry
No need to search for blury, fast tutorials on YouTube! Tektoma has all that you will need to get started making games. The instructions on Tektoma are clear and to the point.

In order to use Tektoma and make games, you will need to download a free gamemaker (or you can pay for the upgraded version for $25).  You can watch a free tutorial here.

You can go to their website and get a 14 day trial.  After that, you will be charged $14.95 per month payable by PayPal or credit card.
There is a discussion board forum where people can ask questions and I did notice that the owner of Tektoma is on the forum to help with problems and questions.  They do say that no personal messages are allowed to be sent.

If all of this is confusing to you, that's ok!  It's probably not to your jr. higher or high schooler!  My 7th grader said, "Cool!"  Personally, I think it will be a bit too much for the younger child who isn't into technology.  Younger children will need help from a parent to get started. 

Check it out for yourself!  Looks like technology is here to stay!
