Using RPG systems for education?
Posted 03 July 2012 - 09:06 AM
I was curious if anyone has seen something like that, and how effective they are. I do realize that I'm above the point where any of that would be targeted at me (you know, being in college and all). However, formerly being in the education department I think it is something that should exist if it doesn't.

She is also one of a group (Escapade Games) that is currently developing a boardgame/RPG targeted at younger children (Story Realms).

I suppose that there are skills that people pick up or improve on simply by playing - problem solving, risk assessment, comprehension, critical thinking, game (and gaming) theory, probability, team working (possibly...) and others too no doubt.
One thing I've noticed that I do if I am GMing a vaguely historic setting game (eg CoC or Backswords and Bucklers) is research around the setting considerably more than I normally would be motivated to do, even if it is not likely to be directly used in the game. As a lure to motivate me to learn gaming seems to work
