Lloyd's Collection of
Exemplary Student Projects
This is one of the newest sections on NowhereRoad.com. My goal is to highlight exemplary work of our students here at the University of Georgia. My criteria are very subjective it's what I like! (Hey, it's my web site.) But, look for examples here of projects that creatively exploit the interactive opportunities of computers while triggering the play phenomenon in the user. I also want to highlight projects that take into account the current limitations of Internet delivery systems as well as activities that lend themselves to creative and flexible integration by teachers and learners into their educational practices. So, the projects showcased here will generally be small, both in kilobytes and time to complete. (We have many excellent large scale team projects being produced in our graduate program, but they will not be highlighted here due to this reason.) Hence, these are projects that a teacher or learner could use easily as part of a lesson. This is consistent with my beliefs about the need to provide teachers and learners with a repository of interactive modules across all subject areas. (See my essay on on the WWILD team concept for more information.)
