I’m absolutely delighted to have had the opportunity to chat with Paul Darvasi about The Museum of Me, the innovative appraoch to Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) which he created along with IThrive Games – and The Ward Game, which preceded it – which is a prescription to cure ‘Senioritis’.

I first heard of Paul and the Museum of Me through Kathy Fuller, one of the very first contributors to Ludogogy. Kathy’s work is also fascinating and you can discover more at her Author Archive here on Ludogogy.

Throughout the interview, Paul highlights some books and other resources which you will find useful to explore the ideas behind the Museum of Me and The Ward Game.

The Well-played Game by Bernard DeKoven is available on Amazon

Teacher Pioneers is available for free download and contains a chapter written by Paul about using games in High School English teaching.

You can contact Paul via Twitter or LinkedIn and read more about The Ward Game on his blog.

Paul is not the first IThrive alum to contribute to Ludogogy. Please take a read of ‘Imagining a Better World: Game Design with and for Teens’ by Susan Rivers and Susan X Jane.
