Games that Can Teach Lessons and Bond a Team
During this 30 minute session, we will take a look at some games that you can use to develop communication and problem solving in your students or staff. You can also bond as a team playing them, because they’re not just lame educational games. They’re actually fun! We’ll look at both virtual and analog games that are easy, approachable, and affordable (or free!).
