Gaming the Past

As we move through the class, I’d like you all to use this space in three ways. First, it will be the place where you’ll post your thoughts on each unit and links to any hands-on projects we are working on in class this semester. I’d also like you to use this space as a place to reflect on your the class, your frustrations, your successes, and even your miss steps (there will be some of those) as you progress through the class. In this capacity, the blog will serve as a work journal,  a complete record of your research as you build your games, the readings you’ve done for class, your participation in the labs and group project, the discoveries you’ve made along the way and the issues that crop up as you complete your projects. Lastly, I’d like this blog to serve as a clearinghouse of ideas, of thoughts about games and history, and a place where you and I can share new stories or interesting links that feature games and history education. You should plan on posting at least once a week, but I’d like to see even more. These posts should be largely informal, unless noted in a prompt and will be graded largely as participation. I look forward to reading your thoughts and learning about what interests you.
