Tablets, Minecraft and Lord of the Flies

A session at Bring IT, Together [ECOO & OASBO]

Friday 25th October, 2013

12:00pm to 12:45pm (EST)

William Golding's Lord of the Flies explores themes that are still relevant today. He asks us what would happen if a group of boys were stranded on island? To extend that thought experiment, what would happen if a class was stranded on a digital island? The presenter will share the experiences of a Gr.10 English class and the learning the students demonstrated in a traditional novel study. An overview of the technical aspects will be included so that others may continue to explore.
