AND EVEN MORE Q&A April 5, 2008

Posted by Robert Rich in symposium.

Do kids have some cognitive abilities because they’re brought up around games their entire lives. Can we escape from using this in journalism?

“No. This is a medium that not just kids but also young adults have grown up with. When you’re talking about anyone under 25 you’re probably looking at a large group for which this medium has been influential in some way.” – Ian Bogost

“All of the young people of today have grown up with computers, and they interact with the world in a completely different way. They aren’t content to sit there and just stare at something.” – Paige West

“Gaming is not a stupid activity. It’s incredibly complex learning. We have to say how does that link to what I want to do with explaining the news. Give people the tools to figure something out, that’s the future, that’s what we have to do.” – Howard Finberg
