Simulations could instead include role play involving participants to act a role which is bounded by the rules and the degree of structuration of the simulation itself. In general, they tend to mimic more familiar or realistic situations than role play. On the other hand, it is true that role play is based on a simulation 24 2 Traditional Settings and New Technologies for Role-Play Implementation process, since participants are invited to act in “as-if” actions and circumstances. Other authors identify the term role play as techniques used in therapeutic situations (Ruben 1999).

2009; Zanardo 2011). In literature, the term role play for learning purposes is often used interchangeably and inconsistently with the term simulation. Indeed, we believe that they can be considered as different points along a continuum; as the difference, it is a matter of learning purposes and objectives rather than typology (Sutcliffe 2002; Ladousse 1987). According to this view, role play engages participants in acting in a given role in a specific situation and can leave space for individual initiative, improvisation and imagination.
