Thomas McMullan:  "Game narratives tend to drink from a narrow pond; they swig space operas and Tolkien, swish them about their mouths and trickle them into rows of polished glasses."

Ce dessin illustre la notion d'"expérience utilisateur" !

OomphMediaGarage's curator insight, June 23, 2013 10:03 PM

Gaming is a great way to experience a story in a variety of ways, often choosing the story you would like to experience based on a set of given boundaries. Kind of like a choose your own adventure book, but typically with better graphics. that is not to say, however, that gaming replaces books, performance art, theatre, etc. Convergence isn't replacement.

description by EDSurge

 

"Can't get enough of our recent gaming guide? Here's another great resource on games and learning from the folks at MindCET, the Israeli edtech innovation incubator and research lab. (Learn more about them here.) The report, "Kids & Digital Games," offers an overview of the works of Katie Salen, James Gee and other thought leaders in the field, asks notable edtech industry "grownups" about their gaming experiences, and most importantly, explores findings from a survey of 1,019 Hebrew and Arabic-speaking kids. Check out some of the highlights here."
