Can you use games to improve brainstorming, collaborative, and critical thinking skills?

Join the Augmented Society Network and play The Decision-Making Game. In the game, you are tasked with playing one of seven different serf roles in a small village in the year 1023. There are dangers that threaten the lives of all who live in the village, as well as opportunities to improve the living standards of some, or perhaps all, residents. Through experiential learning, discussion, and reflection, players will hone their ability to innovate and reach constructive decisions with a group. And have a lot of fun. 

This is a condensed introduction to using MindShifting as a problem solving tool. We are also looking to recruit people for a full three hour workshop, later, as part of the Augmented Society Network's ‘Creativity offers us a new formula for life project’.  

More information on this event:

  • Mitch will explain ‘The Decision-Making Game’
  • Q&A
  • Participants will try solving a contemporary problem using one or more of the collaborative decision-making tactics from the game

Join the Augmented Society Network to discuss:

  • Thinking outside the box. Listen to others. Compromise
  • Making the discussion process more equitable and positive
  • Finding group support for decisions
  • Compromise and flexibility 

About this session's lead and facilitator: Mitch Weisburgh is COO at 3DBear, a VR and AR learning company. He works directly with educators and students to help them think critically and tap into their resourcefulness.
