Lucidity: Connected Learning and Transmedia Games


Patrick Jagoda, Assistant Professor of English, University of Chicago

Game Changer Chicago (GCC) is an interdisciplinary initiative that explores health learning through workshops in which high school aged youth — recruited primarily from underserved schools on the south side of Chicago — collaborate on digital stories and game projects.  Youth acquired media literacy and contributed to this narrative-driven game that seeks to introduce their peers to complex health systems. Digital media tools reinforced the educational principle of “connected learning” that organized these workshops.
