SCHOOLSITE: A Game of Conflict Resolution in School Facilities Planning.
McCall, Michael K.; And Others
This report provides a general introduction to educational gaming and describes a simulation game developed primarily as a teaching device in the training of educational facility planners, but also beneficial for administrators, students, and community leaders. Objectives of the game are to sensitize players to issues and opinions outside their normal frame of reference, portray the complexity of planning issues, and teach that, because of the problems associated with complex and controversial social processes such as educational facilities planning, an acceptable solution can only be reached by cooperation. The game, therefore, emphasizes skills necessary to achieve cooperation, the ability to communicate constructively, and a willingness to compromise one's beliefs for the common good. An extensive bibliography is provided which is divided into general works on simulation and a select list of games pertinent to the educational facilities planning process. (Author/MLF)
