dc.description.abstractThis paper focuses on the design and effects of our pilot study of PurpleState, a Virtual Internship simulation. PurpleState utilizes the concepts of epistemic frames and communities of practice as models for learning in media and democratic education. PurpleState places students in the roles of interns at a strategic communications firm who are hired to develop a media campaign on a proposed fictitious state level “fracking” ban. Results of the study include significant effects on participants’ knowledge of the issue, why it was controversial, the ability of participants to understand political media, and in their beliefs about being able to engage in civic action.en_US
