Changing games

Posted on: November 13, 2013

One of the things I get participants of my inservice course on change management to do is play mobile video games.

Not only do I want them to get insights on the learner mindset, I also use the games as shared platforms from which we draw principles of change.

I look for cross platform mobile games (iOS and Android) of course. I used to ask that participants play a flavour of Angry Birds and Tiny Tower.

With the release of newer games, I am thinking of using Plants vs Zombies 2 (PvZ2) [iOS/Android] and Tiny Death Star [iOS/Android] next semester.

Both are free and work nicely on phones and slates alike. I think they will help participants experience the principles of change management for themselves before we draw them out by discussion and reflection.
