Osw3go.net: Alternate Reality Simulations as Learning Tools

Awarded grant: $20,000

Principal Investigator:

Ulises Mejias, Oswego

This project will develop a template –the SUNY Oswego ARG Package, or SOAP– that can be used for supporting interdisciplinary ‘alternate reality’ simulations collectively played by students using the Web. These simulations ask participants to analyze a fictional problem based on real-life situations, articulate a variety of possible responses to it, and examine the question of what form action should take in the real world after the simulation. The exercise combines online interaction with face-to-face activities that support the learning process. The template and the simulation guide will be released under an open access license.
