RPGs, Working Memory, Thinking Illustratively and Elaborately
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 13, 2018 last modified Jun 13, 2018 05:16 PM — filed under: , , ,
In a TED talk by Peter Doolittle, he talked about two memory constructs, multitasking and working memory, and in this particular talk focused on Working Memory. This is something where role-playing games may support his recommendations in trying to improve how important things are remembered...

Comment RPG Therapeutics training & certification
by Hawke Robinson last modified Dec 31, 2016 01:26 AM
Chugging along nicely, albeit in fits and starts, on the training and certification courses. A question occurred to me. While John is looking to be the first certified trainer, what of myself? As the person creating all the training and certification programs, am I able to be certified myself? I can ace all the tests from memory, but is it a conflict? But it would be kind of weird if the person creating all the certs, doesn't have any of the certs? Do I just go ahead and list the certs by my name, since I created them, or would that be inappropriate? What do you think?

Cognition - Using RPGs to Enhance the Learning Process, from the Cognitive Neuropsychology Perspective
by Hawke Robinson published Nov 29, 2017 last modified Jun 13, 2018 05:11 PM — filed under: , , , , , ,
This could be applied to all RPG Formats in various ways, with different strengths and weaknesses presenting in each format: Tabletop, Live-Action (LARP), computer-based, or solo adventure books/modules. Ideally a mix of all 4 formats would likely have the most powerful effects. This is from a recent assignment for a cognitive neuroscience class. I only had about an hour or two to whip this up, so this is just a simple, quick essay for a class assignment. It isn't very well put together, because the assignments are only worth about 1-10 points out of 1,000, while the tests add up to 800 points of the total grade, so please forgive the lack of formality and poor quality. Hopefully you will still find the information listed useful. I hope in the future to write a much better, more formal version, but with my existing backlog, who knows when that will be, so I am posting this here as a placeholder reminder for me to hopefully work on it in the future. Even in this rough format, it may still be useful for some interesting topical discussions.

Where are Those Research Reports.... Don't you Just Hate When That Happens?
by Hawke Robinson published Jan 23, 2013 last modified Jan 18, 2017 03:24 PM — filed under: , , , ,
In conversation on Facebook yesterday, I mentioned, as I have done a number of times in recent years, about my reading two different research reports about inpatient groups and role-playing gaming. I seemed to recall the papers mentioning they were schizophrenic, and one report was a disaster, while the other was an outstanding success....
