Turtle interactive multimedia

In my previous post I speculate on the significance of authoring interactive multimedia in developing a critical literacy in new media.

Here is an excercise in Turtle Art which mixes the authorship of game and presentation. The intention is that it should raise questions in the author of intended audience, bias, rational and emotional appeal, the relationship of author and viewer in nonlinear media, sound, motion, colour etc.

It is a bare bones example of mixing turn based game and multimedia, based round a global warming theme.

The consumer is presented with multimedia (can be still image, video, audio) and answers y or n to whether they want to take action on global warming, depending on their response they are presented more multimedia or asked whether they want to use nuclear energy, depending on response they get more multimedia. They also get the choice to quit or play again

This is really interesting.
I am working with a deployment of about 140 XOs with 5th grade students. I think they would be really interested in creating and playing this kind of game.
