This chapter links the techniques of applied drama and digital games together and positions them both as successful learning approaches for educators in the 21st century. It draws on the long history of research and practice in applied drama and drama-in-education to suggest how some of the drama techniques developed in this field may be compared with currently developing collaborative digital game-based learning techniques. It outlines the striking similarities between some forms of educational drama, such as Mantle of the Expert and educational digital games such as epistemic games. The chapter also explores the similarities of both drama and gaming as techniques for successful teaching/ learning and the synergies that may be developed by combining them within the classroom.
