Norwegian teacher Tobias Staaby is getting a fair bit of good press
today for playing Telltale's The Walking Dead
with his students at Nordahl Grieg Upper Secondary School in Bergen, Norway.
Staaby incorporates the game into his religious studies curriculum to help spur discussion about morality and ethical choices.
"The Walking Dead
presents some dilemmas [the students] would not have thought of otherwise," Staaby told a reporter from Norwegian media outlet NRK. "That makes their answers to a greater extent their own."
You can watch the full report from NRK in the video above, though it's probably wise to enable subtitles if you don't speak Norwegian.
Though The Walking Dead
is likely the grisliest game ever used in a classroom, is hardly the first -- sandbox games like Kerbal Space Program
have been used as teaching tools for years.
