Epistemic Games is the topic for this week. Epistemic games are games that place the player in an epistemic frame. This could be as a scientist, historian, teacher or other profession. It has the student (player) acting, thinking and communicating as if already in that professional community.

Other are taking a more connectivist approach. If you are taking that connectivist approach, please take a look at the reading and resources - skim the material to get a basic understanding; then pick what you find interesting, intriguing or contentious to look at further. Then please tell us what you think and what you'd like to discuss further. Post in the forum or write it up on your own blog and post in discussions.
