They are finally here!!! The digital narrative games my students created to build empathy. I am obviously more enthusiastic about some than others and it is hard not to show this bias…but anyway..they have two more weeks to improve on their games before submitting a final draft.

  1. Hi, I tried to play some of the games, with varying degrees of success, some didn’t want to let me in. From those that did let me play I got a very different picture of life from my own. As a 65+ year old retired academic, living in central England, I have never really had to imagine myself as an orphan or as a woman. My empathy is conditioned by the sort of issues and problems that I have encountered during a very sheltered life. My circle of friends/work colleagues/neighbours is limited, really to ‘people like me’ and life here is very ‘safe’.

    So I congratulate those games builders that have made me think ‘outside of my box’, thank you.

    Scenarios such as the ones I have seen here are difficult to present in one dimension I think, they might benefit from branching down different routes depending on the answers given. It would be wonderful to see these games developed with a more sophisticated application.

    1. Thank you Simon. I have pointed my students to your comment and also asked them to make all their docs accessible to the public
