Life Skills Through Original Production
Moreover, the Smoothing Up research team at the University of California, Irvine, kind of the Connected Learning Research Network, has been learning connected learning in online communities since 2011. With cases that cover a diversity of tech-oriented geeky inhabitants, we were watching for a case that reached various youth.
The WWE fan public was selected for its diversity and for the ways in which it demonstrates the principles of connected learning. This case discovers a particular WWE fan community called the Wrestling Boards; a forum municipal for wrestling fans.
Interest in professional wrestling is, first and leading, what brings the members of the Wrestling Boards organized. The forum public is vital for many participants because they frequently have no one else who shares their attention in their local societies. Leo is 17 years old from Brazil.

“Maximum people despise it for the scripted nature of the entertaining and desire to watch MMA, saying WWE is totally fake, overlooking the physical feature of the business.”Leo has been watching WWE since 2007 after knowing about it from a TV ad.
Additionally, the WWE World is as vast and wide-ranging as one would doubtful of fandom with 12 million+ likes on its Facebook Page. Fans make and keep a booming wiki, and wrestlers use Twitter and Facebook to save their fans updated b/w matches, posting as their wrestling identities.

So, “We aren’t the WWE Creation; we are just the “cleverer” WWE Universe. Also, there is something in the Internet Wrestling Community (IWC) named ‘smark’; essentially where the wrestling fan is well-informed about the business, knows it’s scripted, and clearly knows it’s a scripted show.
Moreover, I debate almost everything with the followers. I help the members if they required it, I teach the “marks” about the business and how pro wrestling works, as its near-incredible to contribute in the Internet Wrestling Community, if you don’t know about the business, as everybody around you is more in the know.”
The Wrestling Boards public and particularly its fantasy wrestling group, Over the Ropes. Furthermore, it depends on the manufacture of its community members. The production in this community deeply focused on digital media, with writing, graphic, and video production. Rashaan is a 19-year-old from the U.S who makes video promos. Both for his attractiveness in Over the Ropes. As well as making commentary videos for actual matches to post on other forums on the Wrestling Boards.
Over the Ropes, the Wrestling Boards’ imaginary wrestling federation, is a shared activity that needs the partnership and collective action of its members. The production of one week’s show works like this. The booker, sack fist, puts up a yarn called the showing card. Which shows which wrestlers will be matched together that week. Those members whose wrestling types have been selected then start to develop feuds b/w their characters. The sum and quality of the member’s activity will factor into who wins a game.
