511 Deconstructing Games: Game of Phones
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, June 21
Deconstructing Games is a new series of hands-on sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to play a game and then discuss how the mechanics in play can be applied in your own learning context.
This is a game designed to build a mobile learning strategy. It was created by Kris Rockwell and Alicia Sanchez and first appeared at mLearnCon 2011. In it, training and performance challenges are presented to two or more players, who can then play technology, hardware, and expert cards to offer up a potential solution. Both players state their case, and then they can either debate or they can have a third party judge their proposals. Game of Phones is a simple game style that can be expanded, replicated, or added to for team members to create a wide range of strategy or solutions.
