Educational Alternate Reality Game – Video Slideshow Assignment

leave a comment »

(This is the next post in my description of the Finding Identity alternate reality game.)

After the group members solve the photograph puzzle, they are emailed the link to the video slideshow assignment page: http://www.goforbroke.org/learning/arg/scenarios_military-assignment-slideshow.asp.

The group’s new task is to:

Create a VIDEO SLIDESHOW about the significance of the Japanese American segregated military units in World War II.

The main learning objectives of this assignment are as follows:

  1. Players will research the history of the Japanese American segregated military units in World War II
  2. Players will collaborate to synthesize their thoughts on the subject
  3. Players will create a 60-second video slideshow using Flixtime, a free, online video slideshow tool.

Here is an example of a video slideshow that demonstrates the fulfillment of the learning objectives:

As with all of the other assignments, discussion scoring points are awarded based on the quality of comments on the other groups’ completed assignments.

The next blog post will be the start of the next scenario: Resettlement.  Thanks for reading and providing any feedback!
