Video games situate meaning in a multimodal space through embodied experiences to solve problems and reflect on the intricacies of the design of imagined worlds and the design of both real and imagined social relationships in the modern world.
— James Paul Gee
During STAR testing this week, students in our three-hour test block will have two options:
1. Work on projects.
2. Take the gaming challenge.
If you choose to work on your projects, you must watch Video One and Video Two and read this page for all you need to know. If you choose the gaming challenge you must follow the instructions in the GAMESTAR TESTING section below.
If you are in here during the one hour sessions, you’ll be working on your projects. Even though these videos were originally intended for STAR testing blocks, they apply to you. Please watch Video One and Video Two and read this page for all you need to know. WARNING: GarageBand = Saturday School unless you followed the instructions in the videos. HINT: If you’re in doubt, ask me before launching GarageBand because I will be handing out invitations to this weekend’s Mac Lab Saturday School™ as a prize for those who choose not to follow instructions.
