Using RPGs to correct misbehaviour
by Shaun Low published Mar 28, 2018 last modified Jul 24, 2020 05:37 PM — filed under: , , , ,
I've had a lot of students over the years, many of whom would display acts of misbehaviour in and outside of class. Today, I would like to discuss my experiences with using RPGs to correct such traits. I also have a short anecdote that would hopefully inspire parents and educators out there.

Notes from experiments on RPG optimization - Maximizing enjoyment, benefit, immersion, flow, safety, etc.
