Source: 'Photo taken by Zoe Weil' In the United States, the current purpose of schooling is expressed in the mission statement at the U.S. Department of Education website: to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access . Is this mission sufficient and appropriate for students whose future is threatened by global problems they will be required to address? Might they be better served by a more meaningful and comprehensive mission that includes learning to solve the challenges they will face? Climate change is not a future possibility; it is happening now , with catastrophic impacts on humans and nonhumans alike.

One question I have been asking myself is, “Why did the George Floyd murder take place during the worst public health crisis of most of our lifetimes?” The question came to me during an hour-long phone call with a good friend, Daryl, an African-American senior executive of a Fortune 500 company who lives in Ohio. Daryl shared that he was about to take a week off to process the toxic emotions he was still feeling, eight months after Floyd’s murder. It was like a one-two punch, he told me: the pandemic and then Floyd. You have choices after trauma.

We were both walking around our respective homes in different parts of the US (I live in southern California) and breaking it down. In the middle of the conversation, I asked him this question. How did it emerge in my mind? From the collective search for truth he and I were … [Read more...] about Why the George Floyd Tragedy Occurred During the Pandemic

People who have never played video games probably know someone who has, or at least they have heard of famous characters, like Mario, Pikachu, or Lara Croft. Video games as cultural artifacts are already part of most people's culture. Some games can lead the player to think about sensitive or important topics, promoting critical thinking due to the realistic and emotional position in which games involve the player; empathy , as shown with the game Lemmings in a study that evaluated participant’s feelings after gameplay, and even learning about socio-scientific themes, as in games that use STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education  approach in their narratives.
