Digital Narrative – An Evolution of Literary Expression

It is to pioneer an educational pathway that will arrest boys' engagement and offer a legitimate conduit for their already loud and active voice in this area.It will provide a moral compass to boys as they engage in the world of 'supposed' anonymity online. It will attempt to set out a code of conduct for virtual environments. Boys and men are struggling with this new found 'freedom'.It will act as a pathway for boys to enter Universities which already have degrees dealing with these texts.It has the potential to create a digital stream of 'English' which provides access to a wider range of boys and their abilities - these texts have mastered differentiation.Students of the subject, like other subjects, will be educated in the ways to contribute and shape the world of this text as they leave school.The competitive component fosters extra-curricular involvement as well. There are avenues to have intra-school and inter-school competitions with more of the 'skill-based' texts.Most importantly, it will provide the foundation for how educational facilities will educate in the rapidly growing field of extreme immersive texts. Virtual and, now, augmented reality is mainly about what we 'can' do, and little about what we 'should' do. Our institutions of knowledge and wisdom need to be involved.
