In an earlier Blog post we wrote about the Rory's Story Cubes® Study Group in Tokyo, Japan.
Comprising around 40 members from diverse backgrounds, the group develop and share new uses for Rory’s Story Cubes which can be applied in the areas of Human Development, Teaching, Facilitation and Nursery activities.
Mr. Toshihiko Hagiwara is a member of the Study Group and also a lecturer at Tohoku Gakuin University. He has devised a very effective way to use Rory's Story Cubes as an ice breaker at his seminars for Junior students. Each student picks two story cubes. Using the first cube as a prompt, they must introduce and describe themselves to the group. The second cube is then used to help them express their goals and aspirations for the course. Here are the students and Mr. Hagiwara with the cubes they chose, and the thoughts that they shared with the group.
We will share more Ways To Play from the Study Group soon. Send your own Ways To Play to us, we're always listening.
