Teaching Composition with Interactive Fiction, Part Two - TECHStyle

Teaching Composition with Interactive Fiction, Part Two - TECHStyle | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

These differences add an additional dimension to the range of possible writing assignments.  You can ask the students to write about (or through) the games just as they would with a more conventional literary form, but you can also assign IF-specific investigations, asking the students to think about how the genre challenges traditional notions of authorship, audience, persona, narrative, and so on.  For instance, I use Adam Cadre’s short and bruta9:05 for an assignment on the uncomfortable fungibility of the IF player (what does it matter who is typing?), leading students to write about how texts can actively construct and reconstruct their own audiences in other genres as well.  (I should probably clarify this point by telling you how 9:05 smashes players’ assumptions, but I don’t want to spoil the twist for you.)

The concepts of work and play have become farcically reversed: schoolwork is meant to be superfun and play, like homework, is meant to teach.

University of Wisconsin Madison | Games Learning Society | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

The Games, Learning, and Society group is a collection of academic researchers, interactive media (or game) developers, and government and industry leaders who investigate how this medium operates, how it can be used to transform how we learn, and what this means for society. As such we seek to understand what cognitive work goes into playing Zelda, World of Warcraft, or Civilization, how these design features might be leveraged to improve learning via the design of learning systems, and how organizations such as schools will need to respond.
