Virtual Forum Theater: Creating and sharing drama to resolve conflicts
A. Cavallo.
TUFTS UNIVERSITY, (2008)

Virtual Forum Theater (VFT) is a computer-based learning experience that allows faceto-face, computer, and multimedia-based drama. VFT has three parts: VFT the toolset, VFT the creative activity, and VFT the performance. The VFT toolset is a multimedia tool for the creation of dramatic plays using audio, and images that enables participatory and collaborative digital playmaking through the Internet. The VFT activity or process is the collaborative process of creating a digital play, and consists of much more than the VFT toolset, including dramatic exercises involving group bonding, social awareness and Improv skills. A VFT performance refers to the activity of watching and responding to a previously created digital play. In practice, the distinctions between these parts of VFT become blurred; many times a performance becomes a creative activity. In this thesis, VFT refers to the sum total of all of these aspects, including computer tools, group activity to create a digital play, and digital performance with accompanying group discussion.
