“No Girls Allowed…”

Posted: December 3, 2013 in Gaming, Parents, Technology

girlInteresting article at Polygon on gaming and as stated: “Unraveling the story behind the stereotype of video games being for boys.”

Excerpt: “If the selection at the average retailer is anything to go by, girls don’t play video games. If cultural stereotypes are anything to go by, video games are for males. They’re the makers, the buyers and the players.

There is often truth to stereotypes. But whatever truth there may be, the stereotype does not show the long and complicated path taken to formulate it, spread it and have it come back to shape societal views.”

For my 2 wonderful daughters who are big time gamers!!!  See the article here – No Girls Allowed.

Great read on the educational game The Oregon Trail @ Mental Floss: http://mentalfloss.com/article/51930/legend-oregon-trail

A few odds and ends keep showing up on my blog as I share examples of how to blog in various professional development workshops that I am facilitating this June.  We are podcasting, blogging, doing digital storytelling, video conferencing, trying out online tools, and experimenting with several tech gadgets including the Wii.  We have also been involved in Quest Atlantis professional development too.  It has been quite rewarding so far, and I myself have learned so much.  Our training resources can be found at one of my wikis:  HIT – Hokanson’s Instructional Technology Wiki. Enjoy!
