Tabletop Roleplaying Games and Education

29 Sep

Tabletop roleplaying games (RPGs), in addition to being insanely fun, are an excellent way for students to develop their creativity and to channel their interest in fantasy, sci-fi and/or RPGs into a social game where they learn problem-solving and cooperation with their new friends and peers. In my weekend RPG program (separate from King Middle School), students also do creative writing about their adventures!

Here is a PBS video on the benefits of tabletop RPGs. It says “Dungeons & Dragons” as a way to refer to all tabletop RPGs, including the system I mainly use, the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
