Powerpoint 'text adventure' - E.g. "You are in a corridor, there are doors to the left and right. There is a ball on the ground"
Advert / Football strips / Car activities
Design a board game - using a template?
Board game idea expanded:
Easy - customise a template with squares, colour them, drag snakes and ladders onto board, add text (eg "Go back two squares")
Alternatively give pupils more freedom - design board and counters, questions, money, etc. Type up instructions/rules in Word.
Pitch idea using a blog, get feedback, presentation (elevator pitch?), design and develop, play test, comment and adjust, focus groups, survey, sell!
(Far too complex for S1/2 though)
Scripting and Control / Computer game design
