Telltale's The Walking Dead series is famous for putting the player in life-or-death ethical quandaries and forcing them to make difficult decisions. A creative teacher could probably use the game to identify moral dilemmas and explore those dilemmas with a class. As it so happens, one ethics teacher is doing just that.


The video above is a Norwegian news report on Nordahl Grieg high school, whose ethics class is using The Walking Dead to explore ethical quandaries of an extreme and often zombie-tinged nature. (Be sure to turn on "Translate" in the closed-captioning so you can understand what everyone's saying.) This is a smart idea that, if implemented correctly and run well, could really get students engaged with and talking about the fundamentals of ethics.
