Inside the Japanese American Internment - Play online at textadventures.co.uk

Inside the Japanese American Internment - Play online at textadventures.co.uk | NOLA Ed Tech | Scoop.it
It's 1941, and you're a member of one of the most despised groups in America: the Japanese. This game takes you inside one of the darkest chapters in U.S. history: the Japanese American internment, in which over 100,000 Japanese, many of them American citizens by birth, were evacuated from the West Coast and imprisoned en masse in "relocation centers" across the midwest.

While many people think about the internment as a situation that, by denying internees their most basic civil rights, effectively stripped them of their ability to control any aspect of their lives, this game allows you to realize that in fact the internment was all *about* decision-making. At every turn, internees were bombarded with dilemmas: whether to answer "yes" or "no" to a loyalty questionnaire; whether to join the growing resistance movement or stay quiet; whether to throw one's lot in with one's country or one's race. There were rarely any satisfying answers to these questions; indeed, the very fact that internees had to answer them at all speaks to how profoundly unjust was the government's decision to imprison them.

This game has many plotlines and various endings and pathways; so please consider playing through a few different times. For the content and characters of the game, I've drawn on a broad range of historical and literary sources, especially the Supreme Court case of Fred Korematsu, and John Okada's novel "No-No Boy." In fact, nearly all of the situations which you will face are ones which have actually happened. My hope is that this will allow players to experience a world which is at once mundanely real and terrifyingly strange—just as it was for the internees themselves. In drawing on Okada's novel, especially, I also hope to expose this important literary work to a far larger audience than it currently enjoys.

In the current version (v1.2), you play as Freddy Suzuki, a 23 year old welder from Oakland, California. My hope, however, is to greatly expand this game so that players can experience the diversity of perspectives and personalities found among the interned population, especially for female, Issei (first-generation, non-American citizen) and Kibei (American-born, Japanese-educated) internees, and in Canada. Ultimately, I'd like to create two different versions of this game: first, the gamebook you're viewing now, and second, a text adventure. Any suggestions, or interest in collaboration, would be most welcome. (This is my first game, so apologies in advance for any bugs!)

Thank you very much for playing.
Doug Joubert's insight:
This text-based game is an interesting take on WW II internment camps in America.

Mind Mapping and Brainstorming Apps and Websites

Mind Mapping and Brainstorming Apps and Websites | NOLA Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Sometimes students just need a place to get ideas out of their heads and make them a reality. Whether it's through a corkboard, a mind map, a flowchart, or sketches on a whiteboard, students can make their concepts into something usable. When kids are able to express their creativity in this way, it can lead to true problem solving and innovation. These picks give teachers and students ways -- alone or in groups -- to generate and organize ideas that refine and reinvent the traditional graphic organizer.

This is a virtual whiteboard that was designed for maths, but will also be great for art. It allows you to easily scan and drawn images with your webcam or mobile device and convert them in digital graphics that you can manipulate move around and change. Use the invitation code: L3Z9 to get registered more quickly.
