Highly Interactive Virtual Environments

HIVE logoThis project is to engage students of the digital generation in critically responding to social issues through highly interactive virtual environments (HIVEs): virtual worlds and computer/online games. Through creating, role-playing, and collaborating in HIVEs, students in Schaumburg High School used the HIVE to explore their identities in their participating communities by designing avatar appearances, and creating virtual art that addresses social issues. This grant project is co-directed by Lilly Lu, Ph. D., and Aline Click, Co-Director of the Digital Convergence Lab. Funding for this project has come from the NIU Foundation, the Department of Art, and the Division of Outreach, Engagement and Information Technology Services.
