Over at Presentation Zen, Garr Reynold's awesome blog, there is a GREAT post about the value of play at work.
Garr shares a fascinating TED video of Tim Brown CEO of Ideo. In the video you'll see Brown engage the TED audience with experiential learning activities (i.e. games).
Best of all Garr provides a great summary of the lessons Brown shares in the video (thank you Garr!).
I'm a big believer in using playful activities ("teambuilding games") to fully engage a group and to deepen the learning experience. It's great to see the CEO of Ideo explain the value of learning through play.
