Presenting teamwork

How do you present a topic about teams? I started with an activity, which I did with my class back in Geneva when I was still doing the IB in our Theory of Knowledge (ToK) class. It’s called The Marshmallow Challenge. Being in a business school, it is imperative to relate it to how it works in a corporation. Tom Wujec (see video) explains the task, the outcomes/results and expounds on the successes of those who managed to stabilize their towers and keep the marshmallows from touching the table/ground.

My class seems to have enjoyed it although the rules have been modified due to their determination and excitement. I’m glad that they were engaged and motivated and for a topic like this, I thought it is best understood if you learn by applying because you then understand the dynamics of what happens/occurs when being part of a team.
