Gaming like real life Ted Talk

Educators have a strange road ahead of us when we do not experience the same world that our students do. Their level of immersion is hard to understand because I am not a native gamer. Michael Highland’s excerpt was interesting as well because of the quality of the video as well as the content. One of the scenes that moved me was when Michael’s avatar was dressed like he was and they were both standing by the light pole wearing the same outfit. Michael looked at his gun like he could not believe it and the avatar did not flinch. There was a challenge in that movie as well to encourage people to feel and empathize more as well. This is a challenge for sure to reach these students.
