Anyone know the genre of storytelling where game players take on characters in games and remix or write a story out of it? Thanks!

A type of fan fiction maybe?

Hi Philly friends. In the CLMOOC that is happening now, there is a call for serious and/or better memes in Education. Can you think of some that could contribute?
 
Inspired by the serious memes posted recently and Kevin Hodgson's blog today, here is my attempt at a serious meme and the thoughts behind it http://threeimpossiblethings.wordpress.com/2014/06/26/numbers-are-serious-stuff/ #clmooc, #seriousmeme

Clearly, +Mallory McNeal and I are surfing around in the blog hub today. This is a beautiful reflection by Missy Stein about feeling discomfort:

"But I forged ahead, realizing that my emotional response: a bit of stomach twisting, self-denigration, grumbling about feeling out of the loop - is EXACTLY how every one of my students feels at one point or another during the year. What an excellent reminder for me to be compassionate, supportive, and empathetic. We cannot all excel at everything. I certainly will never excel at meme-creation. But I WILL excel at determination and exposing myself to possibilities. I'll even reward myself for diving in the deep end of the meme pool - by going to my studio and being alone. :)"

As my learning curve with the CLMOOC begins to look less like the first lift hill on a roller coaster (h1 in the image below), and more like a reasonable geometric bell curve, I feel that I am making progress in harnessing th...

+TERRY ELLIOTT I don't allow posts on the blog because it is my classroom blog. I am experimenting this summer with my reflections on the blog. I previously had a separate personal blog, but am going with this strategy for now. The video/gif you posted to me is less of a meme and more of a story. I also teach a course on storytelling (for educators) and the gif is most definitely a prompt, but has a message that is open to interpretation by the viewer. Memes, in my opinion, have a message that is determined by the creator, for the viewer to discern.
