Gaming for Vocational Awareness; A Systems Approach. The Bartlesville System.
Roberts, Tommy L.; Keahey, Scott P.
The total systems approach to guidance and counseling is an attempt to help the student understand the personality of the environmental systems in relation to his own personality. Such an approach would provide for integration of the two personalities leading to productive behavior and individual goal achievement. This objective can be approached by teaching the student how to become aware of himself as a "human system" in terms of "system logic". For the Bartlesville System (Total Guidance Information Support System) is proposed that game models be constructed to teach systems logic and concepts. By providing the student with a chance to experience concepts of importance in the economic world, the student has an opportunity to experience how his own personality might react. The gaming approach emphasizes the responsibility of the individual in constructing his personal value and moral system in relationship to his environment. The game development process is discussed. The report concludes with a description of various game models which can be used at various points within the system. (KJ)
