We adults are not very good at collaboration. I believe it is an emergent phenomenon, like social responsibility, based on self-discipline. In my ten years of teaching experience while introducing techniques to assist self-discipline and self-organisation, I have come across a game that might prove critical. It is open source, free, and I am devoting myself to getting it into schools as an lunch-time club or after-school activity. It is the minimal, virtual, team game that proves teamwork within minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=no52er1pgw8 I'd like to offer this to anyone here, to set it up on their school server, to have fun, collect evidence of its effect on kids, as well as establish a competition with global reach. I am also hoping that it is an introduction to GO, and I would like to spread this game through western schools for its profound effect on strategic thinking. Work / Play -- make the decision :)
