On Sept 25 at 10am Pacific Daylight Time, Arturo Cortez will discuss their recent work on video games as media for development. Arturo has offered both a video of a recent talk on this topic and an article. Please engage at least one of these materials as a basis for your comments/questions.
To provide a window into the processes, Arturo introduces the Learning To Transform (LiTT) Video Gaming Lab, a social design-based experiment that builds models for equity-centered educator and student learning through the design of deeper relationships between informal and formal educational environments. In the video, a talk at the University of California Irvine, Arturo provides the history of this research project, as well as a theory of learning that animates the larger design of the project. In the article, they provides a framework, drawing on young people’s video gaming practices, to understand how the play, the imagination, and everyday collaboraction provide contexts for robust sociopolitical meaning making and action.
