Gaming and learning

Games are important when building communities. They help to develop trust and an understanding of each other’s skills and personalities.

In terms of language, wordplay helps us to establish register – to work out what we mean and double mean when we use language. Can we create online community without the use of word games?

Note to self – this begins to pull together work on humour within Schome Park and the work on cohesive ties and register in the same setting. Humour is a way of testing out meanings, and of establishing shared reference points.
