Since we were already doing our book club discussion, we decided to do a hybrid of sorts. 30 minutes will be on how we’re doing our book club and integrating games in it and the other 30 minutes will be on our Ready Player One discussion this week.

How Video Games Embody 21st C Learning Skills with Paul Darvasi.
Chances are he will probably be covering the some of the games that Jon Spike has put up for the Dystopian Arcade for the Metagame Book Club https://sites.google.com/site/metagamebookclub/july-2015-book-club/july-15-week-1/week1game
Instructional designer for online learning at a community college. My interests are online collaboration, immersion, role-play, virtual environments and games. Social network knowledge interests me because I see so much learning that is happening outside of formal learning environments. I believe that ignoring learning from distributed social and professional networks limits our students and our instructors’ futures. I game with a group of highly dedicated educators who are looking at knowledge construction in endgame play in MMORPGs. (Oh, and I have a tendency to be a bit intense about education!)
