How Social Media Can Support Science and Digital Literacy — NOVA Next | Brooke Havlik | PBS.org | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

Paul Darvasi’s high school English classroom in Toronto, Ontario is anything but ordinary – it is blurring the lines between formal and informal education.

 

A lifelong gamer and PhD candidate in York University’s Language, Culture and Teaching program, Paul designed a multimedia, alternative reality experience called The Ward Game to teach One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to his senior English class.

 

Darvasi uses social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to provide game instructions from the fictional totalitarian character “The Big Nurse,” played by Darvasi himself.  He did not use social media the first year he implemented the 30-day game, but it vastly improved the student experience in the second. “It allowed for the game to spill outside of the classroom and immerse them in play day and night, weekday and weekend,” says Darvasi who saw levels of engagement from his students he had rarely seen before.
