Online Social Network Game – FarmVille

Category: Games | Age Group: 16+

TOPIC:

Virtual or real? Whose money are you spending?

RESOURCES NEEDED:

Internet

LEARNING OPPORTUNITY:

When the virtual world and the social media world get together, the opportunity to learn is expanded significantly. Your family will have the opportunity to learn about investing, social pressure, making choices, and separating reality from virtual reality.

THE ACTIVITY:

Go to your Facebook page and log in. Once there, search FarmVille. When you get to the FarmVille page, it will tell you which of your Facebook friends already play the game. Get started as a family and make your decisions collectively.

TIPS:
  • Part of FarmVille is free, but once you get going you will have to make decisions if you want to invest in your virtual world.
FOLLOW UP IDEAS:
  • Play other online social media games such as Song Pop or Coasterville.
