Zombies have invaded the classroom at Nordahl Grieg High School, where Telltale’s The Walking Dead is being used to teach ethics! It makes sense given that The Walking Dead series is often praised for its ability to place characters in difficult situations where tough ethical decisions have to be made fast.
Plus, what’s a better way to make learning fun than using video games and zombies!?

It’s definitely a great way to get students interested in ethics!
Man I wish they had done that when I was in school
now i wished i was back in school
its a really great Idea, its not normal, kids and students may have more ambitions to listen and understand !
You dropped Ben from the bell tower? DETENTION!!!
You see class, from revealing your bite to the group, you learned to always be truthful.
me: yeah, yeah, i just want the zombies, and to kill mothafuckas. ok?
America probably couldnt get away with doing something this innovative and utterly awesome
Hey, this was exactly, what first drew me into following this show. ( of course, as a zombie-philian, the turned dudes, too ) I mean, really, learning about how people function together. ( under extreme circumstances) There’s a lot of reflective mind and dealing with right/wrong-issues, the different ways of different characters on how to look at things, philosophical practicals, how situations can be handled, or better should be not, all the decisions one might opt to make, or not, and if so, why. Aye, think that to be a pretty good way getting the kids intrested in such matters.
Well. I would wonder, what they say about Great Horned Owls to turn into female pheasants, if Daryl put an arrow through them. ( I just had to moan about this at some place, sorry ) But at Norway they WILL notice!
To me there’s ever more. Since I’m an AS-Spektrum person, understanding how people get along with one another naturally gives me some odd difficulties. People who don’t know this, rarely notice and hardly understand. As long as I read and write to people, I ‘get’ them Factor 1:1, but as soon as there’s everything else like paracommunicative extras, intuitive acting, certain facial expressions, emphasis in speech, that like, I’m a little impaired on this or that. Jokes are a tough thing as well.
