Drama Education with Digital Technology explores the rapidly evolving intersections between drama, digital gaming, technology and teaching. It documents the praxis (practice and research) that move beyond anecdotal discussion of approaches and design. The contributors explore the realities of teaching an ancient aesthetic form in classrooms full of technologically able students. It also examines cases from classroom practice to present teaching, with approaches and understandings that are based on evidence and supported by cutting edge learning theory from educational leaders in drama and technology.show more
