"I have been on Second Life since 2006.  At times it was more real than real life.  It is not a game.  It is truly a Second Life and can enhance your first life.  Amazing."

"totally changed my views on GN's as well...I felt invested in "After the Deluge" and in having to click to turn the page, I was able to read at my own pace but still feel as if I was part of the process and movement of the story.…"

"I agree with your previous thoughts on graphic novels.  I had a little experience with them before hand, but I think the social norm for graphic novels is comic books and only for kids. I also agree that the topic for this specific graphic…"

Chhipz commented on Kathryn Guglielmo's blog post Graphic Novels
"I was thinking the same thing, as if "graphic novel" was just the less nerdy way of saying "comic books" haha. I haven't looked at a graphic/comic book since I was young, but this was fun and refreshing experience. I hope we…"

Gaming In The Classroom

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 7:26pm 1 Comment

In class I thought we had an interesting discussion on the topic of gaming in the classroom. I feel that technology, like gaming, can be extremely beneficial in the classroom, if used correctly and implemented at the right time. Kids are now growing up in a time that is full of technology, it would be beneficial to connect with them on that level in order to help them learn.  

However, I can see how some people are skeptical about implementing games in the classroom.  I think it was…

Virtual Worlds

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 7:21pm 1 Comment

We recently read an article by Tom Boelstorff, entitled Coming of Age in Second Life.  It was a very interesting article and kind of gave me a whole new perspective on virtual worlds.  I grew up playing games like the Sims, but that is about as close to a virtual world as I've ever gotten. Or so I thought.

Boelstorff's article discusses how things like reading or writing letters can essentially be perceived as virtual worlds. I thought this was an interesting way of looking…

Tweeting In Class

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 7:11pm 0 Comments

If you told me that we would be tweeting during class, I would think that it was being done slyly and you were trying not to get caught.  Yet, in our class we used Twitter as an educational tool.  I thought this was a really neat concept, and I had a lot of fun doing it.  I think that a lot of teachers and classes could benefit from teaching students how to use Twitter correctly and to use it to its full advantage.

We've tweeted a couple times about the graphic novel we read and we…

Graphic Novels

I must admit, before these last few classes, when I heard the term "graphic novel" I immediately thought of "comic books." And when I heard "comic book" I thought of geeks who were stuck in their childhood. However, I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that graphic novels are so much more than that.  It is a combination of so many media outlets (i.e. literature, art and technology).  The graphic novel we read in class was After The Deluge by Josh Neufeld.  It takes you through the lives…
