Seminar Social Psychology

Write about SECOND LIFE the virtual world game. I have to talk about the thin line between the psychological impacts between helping the people to cope with repressed experiences or in general helping people with communicating with others increasing their interactions either future on face to face etc. Or the thin line between living second life becoming as a first life (reality)! There are some cases like this too.

The books I have to use all of them:

1) Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other (writer Sherry Turkle)
2) Palfrey, J. & Gasser, U. (2008). Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives. Basic Books.
3) Small, G. & Vorgan, G. (2009). iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind. Harper.
4). Rosen, L. (2010). Rewired. Palgrave MacMillan.
5). Tapscott, D. (2009). Grown up Digital: How the Net Generation is Changing Your
World. McGraw Hill.
6). Burke, P. (ed) (2006). Contemporary Social Psychology Theories. Stanford Social

9) http://www.apa.org/monitor/2009/09/second-life.aspx
10) Life 2.0 documentary (very important to incorporate this too its a documentary that is a 100 minutes about second life) this will help you a lot! MR. X IN THIS DOCUMENTARY IS REALLY IMPORTANT AS A POSITIVE EXAMPLE OR SECOND LIFE!!!!
