Notes from Hangout of the 13th of May

Much of the discussion was around the Nixon paper. While teachers and academics are cautious about making claims about computer software, including games, the industry has no such reservations.

There was a good deal of conversation about the 2nd task. As I'd mentioned before, the most straightforward version of a resource is to prepare a briefing paper for a particular audience or group. Some folk were worried about word equivalents. For me, building anything online or making a video clip takes a good deal more work than would go into a 3,500-4000 word briefing document. As I've tried to suggest in the notes for this task, the key to a good resource is opening up a conversation1 with your audience.
