The Metagame Book Club https://sites.google.com/site/metagamebookclub/spring2019will be reading Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism in May and June 2019
We will also have 2 additional optional readings.
1) The Rise of Surveillance Capitalism by Shoshana Zuboff
2) The Pedagogy of the Oppressed
The book club will include a facilitated discussion of what school would look like if it was in a simulation. You can choose to just read the book without doing either of the tracks, but of course we hope you'll join us.
The site for the book club is https://sites.google.com/site/metagamebookclub/spring2019
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).
