by Hawke Robinson published Nov 11, 2012 last modified Dec 03, 2020 01:14 PM — filed under: , ,
For three years in a row now, the sales of hobby games including tabletop role-playing games, have been experiencing a significant boom in sales growth, while the video game industry has been down year after year since 2010. Apparently equal to the Pokemon CCG boom of early 2000's, but spread across a broader range rather than a single product, the entire hobby and role-playing gaming industry is benefiting...

I posted a couple of (unscientific) polls on rpg.net related to the demographics of role-playing gamers.

by Hawke Robinson published Jan 19, 2016 last modified Jul 05, 2020 07:33 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.

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...

I also hope to engage in live broadcast discussion on the topics of the therapeutic aspects of role-playing games. These are in addition to the existing Twitter and Facebook areas....
