Kickstarting LARP-based curriculum materials


An edu-larp is an educational game of play pretend. Students (and teachers) pretend to be someone else for the duration of the class, learning by walking in that person’s shoes. Through research and a hands-on approach, they get a full experience of learning beyond just reading a book or hearing a lecture. What’s more fun: reading about Benjamin Franklin, or BEING Benjamin Franklin for a day?

This is nuts, I’d like to see this playing out every day in a classroom. Seems way harder (but cooler) than traditional teaching methods.
