This week’s Make Cycle is all about making games!
My experience last week has led me to think that creating a game around my inquiry can be a useful way to deepen my understanding of my questions. I went into the summer thinking that I wanted to write a (more or less) formal research plan during the Make Cycles; now, however, I’m starting to think that I’d like to take on the various Make Cycle challenges as a kind of “pre-writing” for my research.
I’m interested in using Twine to create a text-based game that explores power relationships and learning outcomes. I’ve started creating a game that I’m calling “Inquiry.” If anyone would like to work with me on this game, please let me know!
A group of us on TTT [Teachers Teaching Teachers] last night started on a “How I got there” mission (activity) to encourage students to track their inquiry and research process. Afterwards, we started collaboratively writing this…Would love to have anyone help out with this.
If you’re interested in participating in the CLMOOC Make An Inquiry activities, please join us! A few resources are below.
- Visit the Make An Inquiry Google Doc or the Make An Inquiry Hackpad; feel free to add to these docs.
- If you’re blogging about inquiry, please consider adding a link to your post in the shared docs listed above.
- We’ve started to use the hashtag #makeaninquiry on Twitter in conjunction with the #clmooc tag. We are also using the hashtag #makeaninquiry in the CLMOOC Google Plus community.
Are you interested in inquiry, but not sure where to start? Or maybe you have an idea you’d like to share? Feel free to comment here as well!
To borrow an idea from Dave Cormier, we are attempting to create the Make An Inquiry strand while not exactly knowing where we are going, so your suggestions are really golden.
