WHICH great challenges and social problems should the EVOKE Network tackle next?
I think that UE should rely on the power of UE1.5 during the interim. UE1.5 could offer software that lets the users create their own missions, as the best ideas will come from the agents.
WHO would you encourage to play Season 2?
I would encourage many more teachers to play, especially if there are features for exporting the mission and turning it into a classroom lesson. Also, many more retired and active experts should play, because they are a valuable resource to the community
HOW would you change the game for Season 2?
First I would add sycronous chat, translation features, have veteran and respected gamers assist the game runners, add webinars for mass teaching, a team feature, a whiteboard feature, embedded games for creating revenue, and way to export the missions as a classroom lesson and many more, bassically how I envision my mentoring network. Personally, I would change the game with my positive outlook and sunny disposition.
WHAT new tools would you want as an EVOKE agent?
Every agent wont need the same tools, so I think that adding a tool feature would be a good place to start. Im sure that the community will be able to think of many different tools (some of which dont exist yet) but my input is that the system should be flexible in the next season. This will allow good ideas that surface during the 8 weeks to be enacted quickly
WHY would you come back for a second Season? What more would you want from the experience?
I would come back to play the same role that I have this season, as a support role and a thinker. The only improvment on this experience would be to be part of the official UE team, this would confirm that my efforts were noticed and appreciated. This is merely a nitpick though, as I did as much outside of that group, as I have mentioned doing within it.
It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
