TED Education Puzzles
Fascinating online collaborative team puzzles and conundrums with a fun twist!
TED Education Puzzles
"Each team collaborates on a quest to remotely solve a series of logic puzzles as they travel through an imaginary world. Can they work out how to cross the bridge to escape from the zombies, or breakout from the castle dungeon by guessing the correct door?"
This TED Education Puzzles activity may be done as a standalone sessions with teams solving a number of riddles following one storyline, finishing one problem before moving onto the nest. Or, we often use one puzzle as a an option in our online with fun program.
TED Education Puzzles are introduced with a video explaining the problem, and a handout for the teams to describe the rules and the conditions. Teams are separated into smaller groups to work on each problem, usually in competition with the other teams to see who can be the first to solve them all!
Each puzzle takes between 10 and 20 minutes on average, although quick thinking teams may solve one in record time of course! For a half day team building activity, up to 10 individual puzzles may be put together in a half-day session to last up to 3 or 4 hours, with each puzzle leading onto the next one in a brainstorming escape adventure!
- Learn how approach a problem together as a team
- Practice problem solving skills
- Improve out of the box and creative thinking
- Get everyone on the team involved with a challenge and break out of silos
- Take a light hearted break from real life issues and challenge your team
- Sharpen your wits by playing a series of challenging games
This TED Education Puzzles seminar is conducted in an online setting specially adapted for remote and virtual teams that are bound to working from separate geographic locations and across time-zones or simply prefer to follow a seminar online versus coming together in a physical setting.
Maximum group size is around 50. For larger groups we can host multiple sessions at the same time. Smaller teams of up to 10 are then put in virtual breakout rooms.
Location & Duration
This TED Education Puzzles event is staged online using a combination of 'Zoom Meetings' and a selection of other software and websites, all of which are easily accessible or free to download. We can send an invitation via email containing all instructions and links prior to the event. We highly suggest installing the relevant programs and using a desktop or laptop for full experience. Tablet and smartphone access is possible but will contain less functionality. The half day program is up to 4 hours and the full day program up to 8 hours.
TED Education Puzzles are challenges based on the ones presented on the famous YouTube channel with the same name.
Scoring and a winning team is not applicable as this is not a competitive activity, however this may be implemented upon the client's wishes to add another dimension to the event.
Briefing & Debriefing
The event briefing takes place in the central video conference room. The briefing will include a short tutorial for how to use the Video Conferencing software and best practices for operating within a group video chat. i.e. muting microphones when not speaking, looking at camera when speaking etc.
After the briefing, participants will be separated into teams and invited by the facilitator to separate chat rooms, then the lead facilitator gives further instructions and objectives for the activity.
