Team Academy Methods

This document lays out the approach used by Team Academy coaches and programs like Mondragon University's LEINN program, as of 2010. What makes it interesting is the way cooperative, team learning combines with the creation of cooperative businesses. The focus is on entrepreneurship; I would love to see a re-make that focused on cooperativism.

Instructions by Yoko Ono

A source for ideas -- it would be fun to see which of these can be used/adapted for language learning. The website has selections from Grapefruit and Acorn.

On games, agency, protagonism and more

I find this article very interesting. I think the overlap of online games, artificial intelligence (not discussed in this article), and theories of agency and protagonism is a fascinating area. What can we learn as educators? If we see a class or other learning process as a game, how do we sort out these various factors (e.g. weak interaction?).

Cards Against Humanity

This seems like a great game format, combining up to date culturally relevant* questions and answers, many of them inappropriate (a good thing), with random, surrealist play. The instructions are snarky but include many good ideas. It seems like a great game to re-tool to fit your situation, if you can find the right balance of elements: commercial culture, obscenity, poetry, social realism...

I will definitely be using this in some way.
