Cardboard Hack Session 2 – 1:10pm-3:10pm
Laura Zucconi, Stockton College
The workshop will introduce key concepts for running a live classroom RPG (role playing game) with discussion as to how they correlate with traditional humanities content and integration with digital humanities. Development of rudimentary game mechanics and confidence in being a Game Master are the goals. Participants should bring a list of learning objectives and content they would like to convey in RPG form. During the workshop, we will work on the development of characters, skills, quest/scenario building, and integration of digital technology.
