The Metagame Book Club http://bit.ly/su19bookclub will be focusing on science fiction book/s that will be having us do a deep dive into immersion and virtual reality. Right now we're taking feedback on what book/s we should choose. Let us know what you think, here's the list. http://bit.ly/summerbooklist19 of possible books.
We will be bringing back our popular feature - Tech Fact or Fiction. Additionally, we have been challenged to bring in Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed and that challenge has been accepted.
All Google Hangouts will be livestreamed on Games MOOC YouTube https://www.youtube.com/gamesmooc.
This is an open book club for all educators. We also encourage you to invite your friends, students and kids to also participate. The model for the book club is based on social network knowledge construction. Participants will be able to be active in the book club in several ways from lurking (reading the discussions) to actively creating content. It is expected that each participant’s level of activity will vary each week based on the individual’s interest in the weekly topics. Besides the content area, there will be the opportunity for you as an educator to build your games and simulations PLN (Personal Learning Network).
