In this workshop, we will explore how simple and inexpensive tools such as one might find in a dollar store can be utilized in different ways to teach multiple concepts utilizing games and low-fidelity simulation. In other words, the same tool can reach across learning barriers and resource restrictions, providing access for learning in nearly any environment with nearly any group of learners. One tool is not restricted to teaching one lesson to only one type of audience. Participants in this workshop will use examples the tools in classroom-based activities and learn how to apply them in multiple situations to teach abstract or complex concepts. Each workshop attendee will walk away with ideas for low cost, low barrier resources that they can begin using immediately and can easily share with colleagues. Participants should plan to play; this will be an interactive, not didactic, experience. Learning goals: 1) Employ tools that are readily available and inexpensive to teach team and teamwork skills. 2) Examine naïve tasks that might be utilized to make learning accessible to as large a group as possible. 3) Propose possible learning goals that can be generated from a single engaged learning activity or game that can be used across multiple disciplines, skill levels, and educational venues.
