Software priorities for classroom roleplay

Skip Cole of Sea Change Simulations is currently running an online poll that asks “What are the features of the software we need to get teachers to run role plays in their classrooms?

So far, the top four answers (based on more than 400 replies from educators) are:

  1. Simple enough overview tutorial that newbies can understand and follow from A – Z, then implement with minimal assistance.
  2. Ability for teachers to be able to modify simulations to their needs.
  3. Add discovery learning open environments.
  4. Ability to track the actions of the students so they can be ‘played back’ during a debrief

At the moment the poll is still open, so you can contribute your own thoughts on the matter here.
