How Do I Use the Action Board Games for Teletherapy Sessions or Distance Learning?
If you have Powerpoint, it is easy to share your screen on a platform like ZOOM ™️ and you can give control of the mouse to the student to take turns.
If you are using Google™️ with Distance Learning Platforms, make a copy of the Google Sheets file. Share a link with the student to allow them to edit the file. You can both edit the file in real time and take turns using the spinner and moving your game pieces.
A third option is to combine the computer version with the print version. Email a copy of the Action Game Board you want to play with the student. The student can print it out at home. During your telehealth session, you can share the game board on your computer and the student can spin the spinner with a paperclip and pencil, move a real game piece along his/her board game and complete the actions.
How do I Use the Games In Person?
The great thing about these Active Board games is you can use them on a computer or in print! Print out the games in the regular size or enlarged size, to move the game pieces along the path and get physically active!
