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?

How far to go with trolls?
by Hawke Robinson published Mar 10, 2016 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:24 PM — filed under: , ,
Recently in a Facebook conversation regarding the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer, I had some interaction with what turned out to be a troll. At first I thought it might be a legitimate interaction, but only too late was it clear they were otherwise... I thought it would be fun to post the interaction here for future reference.
