  22. 22. Digital Drama Using Virtual Worlds in Process Drama The steps involved in using these environments is not dissimilar to regular dramatic activities: <ul><li>Theme or Topic </li></ul><ul><li>Context </li></ul><ul><li>Roles </li></ul><ul><li>Frame </li></ul><ul><li>Sign </li></ul><ul><li>Strategies </li></ul>From Pamela Bowell and Brian Heap “Planning Process Drama”
  23. 23. Digital Drama Using Virtual Worlds in Process Drama The most obvious omission in many explorations is taking time to learn to use the tools – in this case the environment needs to be familiar to both the teacher and the learner.
