Lesson Notes of Friday, November 27, 2009

Tuesday, Nov. 24: We spent the entire period playing ‘old school’ board games, such as Jenga, Connect Four, Guesstures, Outburst, and Chess.

Wednesday, Nov. 25:  We spent this period playing Video Games in class. Students brought in / played: NHL 10, UFC, a soccer game, and Guitar Hero.

Thursday, Nov. 26: We spent the day in the lab reading articles on two important concepts: stimulus addiction and immersion (which is defined as completing losing oneself in an activity so that one loses sense of time and space). We watched this video called Immersion and read this article on Stimulus Addiction.

Friday, Nov. 27: We spent the period finishing up Thursday’s work in class and then completed an activity that required students to choose one of two activities:
1. Create a VENN DIAGRAM  to compare the Similarities and Differences between OLD SCHOOL BOARD GAMES and CUTTING EDGE VIDEO GAMES.
2. Write a letter pretending you are either a BOARD GAME or a VIDEO GAME, and you are writing to your opposite counterpart: so a BOARD GAME writes to a VIDEO GAME or vice versa.  In your letter, you must explain why you are better or worse than the other. Note: You can be sarcastic if you want!

A Western student charged after a melee with campus police was caught on video and posted on YouTube has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric assessment.

Irnes Zeljkovic, 22, was charged with mischief, resisting arrest, escaping custody and assaulting a peace officer after the Oct. 14 arrest inside the the University of Western Ontario’s Social Sciences building.

His next appearance in the London courthouse adult therapeutic court is scheduled for Jan. 27.

The 90-second video recorded on a cellphone went viral on the Internet. It showed a man being struck 35 times by campus police and city cops with punches, kicks and hits with a baton.

At the time, police said they were responding to a report that a fourth-year student had barricaded himself in a seventh floor office. He charged at two officers, broke free of another and eventually ran to the main floor.

The video caught three officers scrambling with a man on the ground. Two other officers joined in. He was told repeatedly to “stop resisting.”

He eventually calmed down and was taken into custody.
