Short Description:
Use the CYOA structure of Bandersnatch to teach in your classroom. Look at various narrative webs and explore STEAM examples where story drives the learning and students make meaningful choices.
Long Description:
Bandersnatch (Black Mirror), which uses the Choose-Your-Own-Adventure format, gives watchers a way to make their own path through digital content and feel like their choices have meaning. The format can be applied to a classroom/library/museum setting where student choice can create unique experiences while also maintaining shared goals with the rest of the class. This session discusses various narration webs to allow students to make choices in their learning/research/activity. We have used this method in STEAM courses, immersive theatre, and museum exhibits with positive results. Many examples and formats will be explored including paper format, Google Slides, ClassCraft, and more. Participants should leave with ideas for lesson plans and templates to build out for their own classes.
