The Innovation Learning Network invited me out to Seattle to talk about low tech games for teaching and learning, speaking to an audience of medical directors. I’m putting my money where my mouth is, making them pretend to be student nurses on a pediatric oncology rotation! Will it work? Who knows? Playtesting a 60-player game is somewhat challenging. Even if it fails, it will fail instructively, and it will fail at the swanky top of the Space Needle.

Here are the pieces of my game, which may or may not make sense without the special ingredient, which is me.

    Whoa, this looks very cool. As you know, I’m always interested in games for teaching. Looks like you have a simple and (hopefully) functional model here. Let us know how it works out in practice!

    Thanks guys, it went very well. They were smart and enthusiastic – I know because they cheated! If players aren’t cheating you could stand to engage them better, right?
