RadioActive is an hour long talk show hosted by Natalie Kivell, a Ph.D. candidate in Community Well-Being at the University of Miami. Each week Natalie interviews academics and/or activists from around the world who dive into critical discussions from a Community Psychology lens aimed specifically at addressing structural inequality and the root causes of our complex social problems. The show aims to provoke listeners to think differently about social change and social justice to help shift how we think, act and react to social change efforts in our research and practice.
RadioActive airs every Sunday at 6pm on wvum.org out of the University of Miami student radio station.
Community Psychology & Online Fighting Games
On this episode of RadioActive I bring you the Online Technologies Lab researchers who shared their work on Online Fighting Game Communities. Dr. Chris Keys (pictured), Dr. Crystal Steltenpohl (pictured), Kevin Ryan and Jordan Reed shared their research from both a Community Psychology and an Education perspective outlining the unique qualities of the online communities from which we can learn, the process of learning inside of these communities and the idea of good and bad players and prototypically of players.
