I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be presenting at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) about using TTRPGs like Dungeons and Dragons in classrooms! The workshop will be Saturday, January 23, 2021, at 10AM PST.
Are you interested in integrating games like Dungeons and Dragons into your classroom? Tabletop role-playing games are a great support not only for educational and academic outcomes, but also help students build social and emotional skills through authentic relational play. This tool is especially helpful for neurodivergent youth, as it recognizes and respects unconventional and creative expression, and builds community inside and outside of the classroom. Workshop participants will learn the basic structure and elements of a tabletop role-playing game, how they can support social emotional learning goals, and how roleplaying games are especially useful as participation structures for neurodivergent youth.
If you have already participated in our Training Program, some of the material covered will be review, but we’ll also be playing some games in small groups that you may enjoy while receiving 2.5 WA State Clock Hours!
