For the past few days, Google alerts e-mailed links to first-year students blog posts on violent video games and I’ve spent late at night reading them and giving them my feedback. I feel like a salary-free teaching assistant. Anyways, these students all came from Tiffany Gallicano‘s class of Mass Media and Society.
From what I can tell, they all need to realize how much of an iceberg the psychology of video games is. Also, I am pretty upset on their selection of journal articles and how they dissect it. Of course, they’re only first-years, non-psych students and maybe my own judgment on what is considered a good academic article may have an influence. But still, I want to bang a harisen on something.
