Webinar: Cooperative New Games with Social Distancing

Over 20 Cooperative New Games for In-Person Socially Distanced Teaching Situations

Webinar Description
When people think of New Games, they remember a lot of physical contact, and for many of the games, that is true. Names like “Hug Tag” and “People to People” give that impression. However, there are also a lot of New Games that do not involve touching and lend themselves to social distancing. It’s not hard to adapt these games, and New Games expert Dale Le Fevre will provide written introductions to videos of the games explaining what you need to do. In most cases it’s pretty much common sense, but sometimes it’s easy things which elude us.
Presented will be 20+ New Games with adaptations for social distancing. In case you are new to New Games, these are cooperative group games that people of any age, size or ability can do. There is some competition in some of the games, but the main element is to have fun and include everyone who wants to play. No-one is ever eliminated, instead you either change roles or sides and keep playing.
The course is presented by Dale N. Le Fevre, New Games Trainer and one of the originators of New Games. He has written 3 books, created 5 streaming videos/DVDs, and given over 1000 workshops and presentations of New Games in 35 countries all over the world.
