Day 6


Day 6 brought some interesting events.

Two of the students had been playing at the internet cafe over the weekend and had finished advanced training and were now teleported to another aprt of the game. They had also moved over level 24 and were able to use magic and advanced weapons, as well as train and ride different creatures.

This was fine however, as they agrees to return to where the other players were and help them through. The session went really well, I was able to get more video footage of their conversations, as well as all six desktop videos, this time we tested them and they all worked.

The next challenge is to devise a method of using the videos as each one ranges between 6 to 8 Gigabytes in size. I took my portable hard drive in, but a 6 gig video file would take about 2 hours to copy over from the PC. So what to do? Do I take my hard drive in tomorrow and ask them to copy each of the six files over, which would take about 8 hours, or do I take the kids in to the cafe to watch the video? I thought of recording the sessions into Soundforge on my laptop or even using the old fashioned Sony portable tape recorder.

I think I'll just take my portable hard drive into the shop in the morning and ask them to copy the files over through the day, that way I can access the kids at school without having to take them out of school. we can just do the interviews at school and I can record them straight into my lap top. I might even be able to match the video files up with their dialogue!! The aim of this is the "stimulated recall" mentioned below, the identification of cognitive processes as they play. Tomorrow will be an interesting day.

The iPhone is not able to recognise business cards so it doesn't accept them directly from the Nokia. When I try to transfer them from the computer, it does not show any contacts even when I synchronise it with those in Microsoft Outlook or Address Book, though it doesn't show any errors about this either.
