Links from sites discussed in class tonight

During our discussion of game-based learning, some of you mentioned Kahoot, a quiz app used in K-12 and beyond.

We talked a bit about creating game guides or walkthroughs and the collaboration and writing required, which led us to this guide created by students at the University of Michigan: Being Not-Rich at UM (and some context on this guide from Inside Higher Ed).

We also played around with Google’s Be Internet Awesome initiative and games (maybe a little bit Black Mirror-y?).

A fantastic and informative piece of scholarship that helped the creator get tenure at Bucknell University: A Fair(y) Use Tale
