Week 4 Reflection '#edcmooc'

Film 1: Robbie

If he has a human brain (he became self-aware in 2032) I guess he's human in terms of rationality, feelings etc. Like 2001: A Space Odyssey, it makes a 'machine' seem 'human'.
Sad & dystopian.
Film 2: Gumdrop

Cheerier, more optimistic & utopian.

Film 3: True Skin

Today it is easier than ever before to store information electronically & access it  rapidly: see the  'Is Google Making Us Stupid?'
This digital/electronic capability has obvious relevance for  education/ways of learning.

Film 4: Avatar Days

One voice says his basic character doesn't change while he is gaming, but the final section raises questions re. reality & fantasy. Is it healthy to spend long hours in gaming activities which involve life & death decision-making?
