Video Games and Pro-Social Development – Gene Koo

Learning scientists have advanced video games as paradigmatic learning experiences; meanwhile media activists have condemned games as stimulating aggression or worse. Gene Koo believes games can succeed as learning environments for moral and ethical issues — not just for ill, but also for the better. First, though, they must succeed as both good games and good pro-social experiences. Koo looks in particular at choice, consequence, and reflection as key aspects of an effective pro-social game, using not just the learning sciences but also the perspective of moral psychology and character education.

Judith Donath, Associate Professor at the MIT Media Lab and director of its Sociable Media research group, was the guest speaker this week at the Berkman Center’s Luncheon Series.

Donath’s presentation was titled “Designing Society”. In it, she presents several design projects from the Sociable Media Group. Some are visualizations of online interactions, which reveal important but hard to perceive social patterns. Others are experimental mediated social spaces, where the goal is to balance legibility with innovative computational capabilities.

The focus will be to show how design affects identity, reputation and trust – the foundations of society.

Beth Kolko, Berkman Fellow and Associate Professor of Technical Communication at the University of Washington, was the guest speaker this week at the Berkman Center’s Luncheon Series.

Kolko’s presentation was entitled “User, Hacker, Builder, Thief: Creativity and Consumerism in a Digital Age.”

The not very slow but definitely steady flow of computer technology into far corners of everyday life has changed fundamental cultural processes and affected how people work, learn, and play. It’s also provided lots of cool stuff to buy. But by some measures there has also been a somewhat fundamental failure of imagination in envisioning what hardware, software and services can look like which has resulted in users from outside targeted demographics adapting technology in unexpected and creative ways. This talk is about diversity of design, the cult of expertise, why hackers are the good guys and lays out the argument that theories of subjectivity and axe grinders can be part of the same conversation. Encouraging users to become hackers, builders, and thieves may be the best way to ensure creative and diverse design.
