Games can be a powerfully social medium, connecting players as they take on characters, understand new perspectives, and collaborate to build the world of the game. We’ll discuss how narrative serves as a powerful organizer and motivator across settings, some of the range and variety of character based and role playing games, and the kinds of teaching and learning they enable. Then we’ll do a playthrough of the rules-light, fast-paced storytelling game Kids on Bikes, with time after for a debrief and discussion. No prior experience required, come ready to play and explore.
