Teach One

TEACH ONE: INTRO

Purpose

The purpose of this unit is to combine the knowledge from the See One unit and Do One unit, with the experience gained from carrying out a playful simulation in an educational context. In the Teach One unit you will combine all the knowledge and experience around playful simulations by creating a Teach One blogpost where you share your experience, thoughts and insights to inspire others.

In the following Remix One unit you will read - and hopefully be inspired by - other participants’ blogpost and try to take ideas, advice and knowledge from their knowledge and experience to further your own practice.
