Values at Play
The Values at Play (VAP) project was conceived with the intent of investigating how video game designers consciously and unconsciously embed social values into video games through narratives and game mechanics. This curriculum, a corollary of the research project, will introduce designers to a systematic method for discovering, analyzing, and integrating values into their design work. All of the materials associated with the curriculum are available on this page as downloadable documents.
Digital Storytelling Multimedia Archive
Digital stories are multimedia-authoring projects combining texts, images, and audio files into a short film clip (mostly 3-5 minutes). In recent years, digital storytelling has turned college and university classrooms into spaces of creative critical production. Digital stories have proven to be a powerful medium for students to represent a theoretically-informed understanding of texts and contexts in a form other than “traditional” writing. This multimedia archive on digital storytelli

The Protohaus Project
Alfred University MFA student Ann Holley designed and built Protohaus, with about 150 square feet of living space, using as many recycled, reused and/or sustainable materials as possible. The house, located on AU property, is completely "off-the-grid:" powered by solar energy, with propane-powered refrigerator and stove. Holley will live in the house this academic year as both an art and environmental project.
6.041 Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability (MIT)
Welcome to 6.041/6.431, a subject on the modeling and analysis of random phenomena and processes, including the basics of statistical inference. Nowadays, there is broad consensus that the ability to think probabilistically is a fundamental component of scientific literacy. For example: The concept of statistical significance (to be touched upon at the end of this course) is considered by the Financial Times as one of "The Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Science".

Research and Investigation Project: A Grave Undertaking
The central focus of the Research and Investigation Project (RIP): A Grave Undertaking unit is an exploration of the lives of individuals who lived in Deerfield from 1780-1880. Throughout their investigations of the past, students analyze a variety of primary and secondary sources and material culture to draw inferences about their research subjects, Deerfield's history, and the history of the country during this 100-year period. The five lessons in this unit take three to four weeks to complete
