Online Version Game of Life Exercise
The Game of Life exercise is often used in face-to-face disability awareness training sessions. It’s a nice interactive method that provokes discussion about the barriers and disadvantages men and women with disabilities are facing in their life cycle. But is it possible to use this exercise in an online session as well? I have been breeding on this question for months, but I finally found the solution. And I am happy to share it with you!
I have used Google Jamboard to create the Game of Life playing field with the four characters (man and woman with a disability, man and woman without a disabilitiy). The participants can access the google jamboard with a link and move the characters in the playing field. It’s as simple as that! You can download a pdf of the Jamboard below. If you want to receive a link to the online google Jamboard, so you can test out the tool yourself. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com and I will share the link with you.
