Skills Converged > Team Building Exercise: Take it Without Touching | Serious Play | Scoop.it

This is a simple but fun team building exercise most suitable for outdoors. This exercise can also be a fun activity for kids. You can run competitively and give a prize to the winner. It helps to train people on staying focused while being totally aware of their environment and the dynamic changes. A winner must be good at predicting what others are going to do while keeping them guessing on he would do.

When Susan Brandt, 66, of Miami, saw her parents starting to lose their memory, she turned to online games at a website called Lumosity in an attempt to sharpen her mind. Related: Seven tricks to improve your memory. “The single biggest thing I’m afraid of — and [it] is not getting cancer, not having rheumatism, not being able to walk around — it is losing your mind,” she said. “It is being senile.”

5 Reasons Why Gaming Is An Effective Way to Teach Empathy (And Other Skills)

5 Reasons Why Gaming Is An Effective Way to Teach Empathy (And Other Skills) | Serious Play | Scoop.it

How do sports and video games teach kids to be empathetic?


Video games and gaming are great motivators. Games can also be a rewarding activity for social and mental well-being. Healthy Minds Canada (HMC) has developed a prototype for a new mobile game, designed to develop empathy and improve life skills in young gamers (aged 9-16).  HMC believes that in order to promote a more understanding culture and to stop bullying, improving empathy is essential in de-stigmatizing all mental health issues and changing users’ off-line behaviour.


=============================

So what makes gaming an effective way

to teach kids how to

be empathetic?

More evidence to suggest that games are powerful tools to help cultivate social-emotional skills. 

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, April 14, 8:14 AM

A really misleading title. This article is about a game that is being developed that they HOPE will teach empathy.  I'm not convinced.

A great way to increase creativity is to use random stimuli. Random thoughts can lead to new associations which in turn can help the group to explore new parts of a search space not considered before.

This exercise helps delegates to use readily available modern technology for inspiration from random content and to improve their creative brainstorming.

 

Objective

Get inspired by a series of images collected by another groups to think of new solutions.

Great Ways to get Learners up and Moving – without Chaos! | Trainers Warehouse Blog

Great Ways to get Learners up and Moving – without Chaos! | Trainers Warehouse Blog | Serious Play | Scoop.it

As a 20-year veteran middle-school teacher, I learned very early in my career that if you don’t physically move middle-school students sometime during your lesson or class time, they will move you in ways you wish you could forget,” says Minnesota teacher Kim Campbell in this thought-provoking AMLE Magazine article. Campbell believes students can actively listen to a teacher for about as many minutes as they are old, meaning that most middle-school students are good for less than 15 minutes of seat time before their attention flags. Her colleague Mark McLeod puts it this way: “When the butt goes numb, the brain goes dumb.” Here are Campbell’s guidelines for managing movement for the greatest instructional gain:

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations | Serious Play | Scoop.it
This is a method of constructing effective PowerPoint presentations in a way that helps your audience pay attention to you and understand your ideas more fully. With Attention Method, the slides are designed to add power, emphasis, and deeper understanding to your well-scripted speech. You flip slides often so that, at any given time, your slides always support only what you're saying and contain no distracting information. Instead of one slide with several bullets, each slide should contain one idea expressed in vibrant images and minimalistic text.
