One Way to Create Educational Games

role-playing games, improvisational theatre


Improv games, which are used to train actors in how to do improvisational theatre, may be used to train other professions as well. The games assist in the development of simple skills and also give context for the skills’ use. The director chooses a series of these quick and simple games, tailoring the games to the already existing skills of the students. The
skills built through the games may assist with further exercises, which may vary widely depending on the field in which they are taught. Instructions on how to create improv games, and hazards to avoid, are also included, should a teacher or director decide
to create some games.
