If you have spent time as a team-building facilitator or adventure-based educator you probably have heard of Project Adventure. One of the people who was instrumental in the development of Project Adventure in the early 1990’s is Australian adventure-based educator Mark Collard. He is the author of No Props: Great Games with No Equipment and Count Me In: Large Group Activities That Work, both published by Project Adventure Inc. and a consistently popular conference presenter.
Mark has recently gone live with his new fee-based activity resource site called Playmeo.
I took some time looking around on his site. It’s very easy to use and there are a ton of great activities on there.
- many of the activities have videos. You’ll watch real groups participate in the activity.
- there are st-by-step instructions that can be printed out or downloaded to your mobile device.
- different variations so you can tweak the activity to suit your group’s needs.
- ready to use lesson plans.
- leadership tips and narratives.
While this is a membership site, there are some free activities as well so you can get a feel for it. However, the cost of membership is very low, $8 month. However, if you’re interested in the site you might as well pay for the $47 annual plan – the cost of a couple of team-building books.
The way I plan on using this site is by showing some of my favorite videos during staff training and then playing them afterwards.
