PostSubject: Jane McGonigal: Gaming can make a better world   Fri Apr 16, 2010 1:29 am

Posted by Citrond in the Chocobo Chat...this is a really good video to watch, and I didn't want anyone to miss it. It covers "truth" about gaming which is quite awesome and everyone should watch it!

Quote :
Games like World of Warcraft give players the means to save worlds, and
incentive to learn the habits of heroes. What if we could harness this
gamer power to solve real-world problems? Jane McGonigal says we can,
and explains how.

Very good video. Give you a lot to think about. Very innovative.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot."  -Mark Twain

That was cool! I love TED talks! This is another one with Johnny Lee and I plan on using this idea if I am in a school with no interactive whiteboard.

I commented in the shoutbox because I didn't know you made this into an actual post lol, I'll just copy-paste my comment:

I don't want to save the real world! video game worlds are far more interesting :p plus I don't get supapowas!

But she says we do possess suppapowas! Blissful Optimism, Social Fabric...darn I already forgot the other two.
