RPGs can be a great way to teach various skills as well as cultivate creativity and imagination. The Teacher-Gamer Handbook looks to help bridge the gap between gaming at home and educators looking to bring this tool to their classroom. The book is up on Indiegogo now.
From the campaign:
The Teacher-Gamer Handbook is a resource for educators to lead Role Playing Games (such as Dungeons and Dragons) in the classroom, in homeschool and online. It contains a full semester of robust lesson plans and the pedagogical infrastructure to last years that teach 36 life-skills to players with pre-created adventure suggestions, narrative arcs and prompts.
The main premise is: you can’t learn something unless you notice it. The purpose of the RPG Skillset is to generate multitudes of continuous opportunities to notice things within at least 36 major domains of self-development. The possibilities are endless.
The campaign's up and running now and is set to go for another 10 days.
