The Tragedy of the Commons
Short, Daniel
Teaching Science, v62 n1 p22-27 Mar 2016
The tragedy of the commons is one of the principal tenets of ecology. Recent developments in experiential computer-based simulation of the tragedy of the commons are described. A virtual learning environment is developed using the popular video game "Minecraft". The virtual learning environment is used to experience first-hand depletion of common property resources and to explore issues of sustainability and cooperation versus competition.
