Does RPG reading complexity impact participant development of intrinsic reading motivation, speed of development, and total reading advancement?
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 22, 2017 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:45 PM — filed under: , , , , ,
RPGs are well known to spark interest in reading, and may promote overall reading advancement. That being said, how much does the reading comprehension required for RPGs impact this overall advancement? Using "Adult" RPG Systems with youth, rather than "bringing down" a system to "their level". This is one anecdotal example that I can share, since it is my own kids, but I have seen repeated many times in practice with others, over the years. But have not (yet) run a controlled study to validate or negate these observations. Your thoughts and experiences?

Cognition - Using RPGs to Enhance the Learning Process, from the Cognitive Neuropsychology Perspective
by Hawke Robinson published Nov 29, 2017 last modified Nov 29, 2017 10:14 AM — 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.

My best ICT lesson: algorithms and binary meets fantasy scenarios
by Hawke Robinson published May 13, 2013 last modified Feb 03, 2016 01:53 PM — filed under: ,
Inspired by the book Computational Fairy Tales, Chris Leach created a fantasy world for his ICT class to introduce them to computational thinking - Re-posted here for archival purposes, an interesting article on how an information and communication technologies instructor used fantasy settings, that could be tied into role-playing gaming to help explain mathematical and computer science based concepts in ways that might be more accessible to a wider audience....

Østerskov Efterskole - Danish public high school teaching all subjects using LARP
by Hawke Robinson published Oct 21, 2012 last modified Feb 03, 2016 01:52 PM — filed under: , , , , ,
Thanks to feedback from @Jmstar on Twitter, he pointed out a public school in Denmark teaching all subjects for what in the US we would consider sort of upper high school, or post high school between high school and college, teaching in depth educational subjects entirely using LARP techniques.

ADD/ADHD Classroom Modifications: Gamification - Competitive vs. Cooperative
by Hawke Robinson published Jan 19, 2016 last modified Apr 04, 2016 12:39 AM — filed under: , , , , , , , , ,
This is a less formal, discussion posting. Not really cleaned up, since I have other deadlines looming where I need to focus my time. But I wanted to post it while thinking about it, before it gets buried by other projects. It is a slightly lengthy, not quite essay, regarding my concerns about the recommendations for "gamification" of instruction in the classroom, especially competitive versus cooperative. It is posted more as a forum discussion request. I look forward to everyone's comments. At the time of this posting I was taking an elective course in Teaching Youth & Teens with ADD / ADHD & Executive Function (EF) Deficits. Basically how to understand and provide appropriate adaptations when teaching this population group. Part of the course includes online discussions. I thought I would save for discussion outside of the classroom, my postings of related topics. I welcome feedback from others...

Have Fun Learning InfoSec Through Role-playing Gaming
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 03, 2016 last modified Oct 08, 2016 05:01 PM — filed under: , , , , , , , ,
Tonight I begin play-testing the brand new Cryptomancer RPG by Chad Walker. It is a role-playing game specifically useful for teaching the basics of Information Security (InfoSec) to laymen (and professionals), in a fun way. It is first and foremost designed as a fun fantasy RPG setting (with the InfoSec twist), that just happens to teach basic InfoSec concepts and good (and bad) practices as a byproduct of participation.
