  2. 2. Values in Play – Interactional Life with the Sims

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Louise Peterson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; open-ended games; sandbox games; game play; The Sims; interaction analysis; video analysis; sociocultural theory; fantasy and creativity; role distance; learning; values;

    Abstract : This study arises from pedagogical discussion about learning potential with computer games – more precisely, that one game genre called open-ended (sandbox) games can make players explore the game content in such a way that they learn about a specific content or phenomenon while playing. These arguments are strong in the constructionist tradition but are seldom backed up by empirical results. READ MORE

    Abstract : By comparative analysis of Swedish cultural policy (including art policy, heritage policy and Church policy) during the Riksdag periods of 1970-73, 1991-94, 1994-98 and 1998-2002 the relationship between cultural policy and the concept of the nation as a homogenous cultural community (defined by either an ethnic or a state-framed concept) is explored. Neoinstitutional analysis of cultural policy as an organisational field is combined with analysis of how the nation is conceived as an imagined community, and what values it strives to uphold to show how these values and concepts are institutionalised in its cultural policy and how this supports the legitimacy of the State as a nation-state.

    Abstract : The need for complex software to coordinate the activities of modern enterprises has become a necessity for their success. As business sectors are rapidly reshaped, organizations become global, and consumers have a seemingly endless degree of choice, these competitive conditions require software engineers to incorporate consumer values—personal judgments based on comparative, preferential experiences—into the design of such supporting software.
