Interactive Fiction as a Teaching Tool

Perhaps that should read “Interactive fiction as a training tool”.  Either way, it would appear that I’ve uncovered a way to turn a writing form that intrigues me into a tool that my teaching self would approve of.

The method really kind of reminds me of the SkillSoft course on behavioral interviewing from a few years ago, but I can easily see how that would work. In fact, I think my interactive piece I was working on last summer (that’s currently gathering dust while I try to knock out Dead Bunny work) actually fits within this because it had varying levels of rightness.

I think if done well, it might also be helpful in teaching children how to interact with each other.

Very interesting. Very flexible artform.
