(Not) Gone in a flash

Posted on: March 22, 2019

I used to facilitate workshops on game-based learning quite regularly. I fondly recall how I leveraged on the same games to facilitate learning on topics like ICT in education, systemic change, and flipped learning.

I did this with preservice teachers, inservice teachers, non-teachers, and even visitors from other countries.

I revived some evergreen ideas on gaming for a new course this week, but had a tough time ensuring that the Flash-based games could work. These were really good games like Dafur is Dying and the McVideo Game.

Neither is hosted by their original makers and I had to find alternative hosts. I do not know how long this will last.

Despite Flash practically doing its best impression of The Walking Dead, it lives on online. Not because it is superior to what we have now — Flash is a security nightmare — but because good ideas were built on flawed ones.
