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.
