Two more educational RPG blogs, and a gaming-with-kids wiki
Posted by WJWalton on Wed 29 of Sept., 2010 20:35 PDT
Posting about David Millians' Games and Education blog reminded me that I had some other blogs and a wiki that I have been meaning to write a post about:

- Ruthless Diastema is an exploration of games in the classroom. Mad Mister Pete Figtree explains his methods in using roleplaying games to teach. I particularly like the syllabus and character sheet that he passes out to each student. (Oh, and the old-school punk in me really likes his Black Flag spoof icon.)

- Homeschool RPG: Scott Duncan blogs about contributing to the education of his three homeschooled daughters through RPGs. His posts are well written and very enjoyable to read.

- Instant Roleplay is a little wiki devoted to simple plots that you can use with any RPG system to run adventures for kids. This is a great idea that needs to really take off - there are a handful of plots posted now. but there haven't been any updates for a while. I'm planning to submit a couple when I have a bit of time, and so should you!
