At the start of the month I had the privilege of getting a piece about tabletop games in school libraries published in the Australian School Library Association’s online journal ACCESS. To be exact, ACCESS, Volume 32, Issue 1, March 2018.
They were kind enough to give me a copy to host here for you to read:
In Praise of Tabletop Games, Part 1 – Philip Minchin ACCESS March 2018
Part 1 is a general introduction to the inherent learning opportunities and multiple literacies fostered by tabletop play, including an introduction to my concept of procedural literacy. Part 2 (
upcoming here) gives a general framework for fostering learning from games experiences, and then three live examples.
I hope you enjoy them!
