FC: The Adventures of Tinywral

1: Livin life to the fullest | The Players | Tinywral | Amanti | Namina

2: During the Winter 2012 term at the University of Michigan-Flint, four students in the Global Technology in Education program sought out to understand how to teach in a game format. In order to explore this innovative notion, they began to develop their research and assignments into a game. After all, we learn through experience. This is reflections of the engagement of one of those students, Bethany Lamer. Her avatar is Tinywral, and this is her adventure.

3: Avatars: Creating an Identity | Learning involves taking on and playing with identities in such a a way that the learner has real choices (in developing the virtual identity) and ample opportunity to meditate on the relationship between new identities and old ones. There is a tripartite play of identities as learners relate, and reflect on, their multiple real-world identities, a virtual identity, and a projective identity. - James Paul Gee | There are so many places on line to create avatars. At first, it just seemed like a fun thing to do. And it was! As the game is starting to evolve, however, I start to see the importance of this character. Tinywral kind of has a cute name, it definitely brings out her feminine side. But Tinywral is a little funky and packs a punch. As we go forward, its important for her to prove herself innovative, but also fun.
