THE GOAL OF THE WORKSHOP:
The workshop is a process which combines cards as training tools, fostering of creative thinking.
The TING game series symbolizes a simple dialogue between Nations via Innovation and also allowing young minds across the globe to take part of the Innovation revolution and globalization even if they can’t afford a computer, let them learn the language first and believe that they also can imagine a better future for all.
Cards are an experiential tool, powerful, rich and varied, cross-language, cross-age, cross-content. A tool that allows endless possibilities of observing processes, expanding awareness, familiarity, dialogue, expression, play, imagination, creativity, and more. Playing with cards is enjoyable and experiential, learning process.
Ting is a social game that stimulates participants to think and come up with “entrepreneurial” / “innovative” solutions to random situations that are drawn while playing.
The structure of the game: Players reveal sets of three cards. The players think of ideas, first separately and then as a group, inspired by the three cards.
Working with cards allows for visual discourse that is not necessarily language-dependent. Thus, people from different countries, speaking different languages, different cognitive levels, and different ages, can use the language of the picture and symbols as a common denominator for discourse. Thus, for example, an adult, parent or educator can engage through the cards in a unique, experiential, empowering and educating dialogue with children of different ages.
