A learning community focused on transforming Schools in Hawaii
Roleplaying in problem based learning is my way to teach. I try to chains different games. I use embedded learning and different kind of wikistorytelling.
At the time I am interessed of playing by blogwriting, facebook and tweeting. I have written rolecards to my colleaques in different parts of Europe and for my students. They are writing blogs of their real motherland or of another land witch is in their rolecards. They are telling of myths, history and the everyday heroes of their land. They are linking different news and stories to their blogs.
The rolecards creates natural conflicts beetween opinios if they are act like their cards asks. Anyway they develop their roles in Facebook and share links and what they are doing in tweets.
I hope that network of friends will be created naturally. The goal is that they will activate to work for culture of Europe together. I hope that eventually we could play like they are playing in the urgentevoke.
At the time they all are adult students from University but later I will get along students from web-high school where I am working too.
Here is my gameblog which has not actually started yet propely. You are welcome to play if you are remember that we are studying culture of Europe.
