A school in Norway uses The Walking Dead game to educate


9:00 AM on 01.20.2014



Our methods of education are evolving all the time. When I was in elementary school, there were heavy amounts of Number Munchers, Oregon Trail, and Reader Rabbit involved in my learning experience. Now, a school in Norway is using Telltale's The Walking Dead series for guidance on ethics. One of the coolest parts of the class is how everyone votes on certain situations individually, then discuss the results as a group.

The teacher states (roughly translated) "I want a good catalyst for ethical dilemmas. This game provides the students with a space to navigate and discuss based on the curriculum." He notes that his class is motivated to learn the lessons within, and at the end of the day, that's what mostly matters.

Do you think Fox News will bother to report on this?

Former Destructoid Editor-in-Chief Nick Chester left us years ago, but even today his presence is felt on the site. This morning, he linked to what was originally thought to be a hysterical bug in The Wolf Among Us that you'v...more

Here's a half hour of the Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC, if you want to watch that

I've never quite understood why people want to watch extended gameplay videos of upcoming content. I mean, if you're excited and want to play it, why would you want to spoil a long chunk of it? Conversely, if you couldn't ca...more

Gods Will Be Watching stressed me the hell out

I have found myself both playing and looking forward to more and more “point-and-click” games in the past few years than ever before. I didn’t grow up with games like Day of the Tentacle or the Monkey Island...more
