Dreaming about new possible futures is a frequent everyday activity that we all engage in as humans. As we confront social pressures in our lives, we often imagine new worlds where these dilemmas do not exist. For us in the LiTT Lab, we believe these practices to be the necessary ingredients for worldmaking. Our goal is to create conditions that support young people and adults in imagining and manifesting the worlds to come.
Through our video gaming practices, our collaborative of young people, educators, community practitioners, and researchers create new virtual spaces. These are prototypes for new worlds that replace harmful institutions and practices with our hopes and desires for just and equitable communities. Our social-design based experiment is aimed at creating a learning ecology that supports participants in developing robust and equity-driven models of learning.
