@stake is an online game for 3-5 players (all in the same room) to build creativity and empathy through small group deliberations. Set up the game following prompts on the site. Begin by choosing a stakeholder deck from the four options. Share the game code with players to enter the room. The game consists of three rounds of discussion and debate ending with the choice of the best idea shared from the group's deliberations.

tag(s): creativity (118), emotions (37), game based learning (137)

In the Classroom

Use this game as part of any lessons on persuasion and empathy. Use the four options from the card deck as models to create your own role play game using different situations specific to your students. For example, debate the use of mobile devices in your classroom or the ability to go off campus for lunch. This could be done easily by writing the Deciders role cards out on 3x5 cards and using a timer. If you are beginning the process of integrating technology, have students create the cards using a Google doc, reviewed here. An alternative would be to allow your "techies" and or gifted students to create a game using Twine, reviewed here, or Quest, reviewed here. These two tools create text-based interactive games. Have school counselors use this @stake to model non-confrontational methods for problem-solving and deliberation.
