Is Gaming the New Essential Literacy? | MindShift | jokaydia Virtual Worlds and Games Links! | Scoop.it

“When people learn to play video games,” said James Paul Gee, “they are learning a new literacy.”

This is one of the reason kids love playing them: They are learning a new interactive language that grants them access to virtual worlds that are filled with intrigue, engagement and meaningful challenges. And one that feels more congruent with the nature and trajectory of today’s world.

install your own OpenSim connected to OSGrid at i live in science land | jokaydia Virtual Worlds and Games Links! | Scoop.it

OpenSim do-it-yourself has come a long way since i first dipped my toes in freedom from Second Life. it’s also become way more stable and i can’t remember anything i miss from Second Life except the physics (and Sunny!) =)

along the lines of becoming easier also come tools to help you get setup more easily. well . . . let’s see how true that is with a real life test case – me! (more like basket case)

i am going to try installing OpenSim and connecting to the OSGrid by following what seem like easy steps on the OSGrid website. they have a pre-configured build of OpenSim that takes care of most of the techy stuff. one caveat however, i believe this is only for PC

It's our Future. Choose wisely. | Fate of the World | jokaydia Virtual Worlds and Games Links! | Scoop.it

Fate of the World is a PC strategy game that simulates the real social and environmental impact of global climate change over the next 200 years. The science, the politics, the destruction — it’s all real, and it’s scary.

 

Your mission: Solve the crisis. But, like life, it won’t be easy. You’ll have to work through natural disasters, foreign diplomacy, clandestine operations, technological breakthroughs, and somehow satisfy the food and energy needs of a growing world population. Will you help the planet or become an agent of destruction?
