Abstract

This proposal will assess the value of live action role playing games in both structured and informal learning environments. Working with literature and current events a multiple plotline game, focusing on Pakistan's role in nuclear proliferation, will be created to aid students in high school and college classes learn about sociotechnological systems. The final version will be evaluated using live participants and an audience in order to judge the practicality and value of the game outside of a formal classroom environment.
