Effective teams are built on mutual understanding, clear communication, and shared purpose. However, developing these qualities requires intention rather than happening organically. Blooket can help transform groups of individuals into cohesive teams ready to collaborate. Let’s explore some engaging team building activities.
Blooket’s game variety of trivia games, races, and challenges provides the perfect structure for team bonding. Start by gathering colleagues, classmates, or friends into groups of 3-5. Larger gatherings can have multiple small teams competing together in one lobby.
Have each group come up with a fun name and custom avatar to represent them. This gives everyone that important sense of identity and belonging right from the start.
One of the most essential skills for teams is clear communication. To target this, try a round of Cryptocurrency. Groups work together to answer questions and solve puzzles.
However, here’s the catch – they can only communicate specific key words associated with each puzzle type. This requires carefully listening, decoding clues, and responding accurately. It’s silly yet strategic communication practice.
Tower of Trust
Success in Tower Defense mode depends on strategy and trust between teammates. Groups must quickly plan defenses and delegate responsibilities when waves approach.
Encourage participants to recognize each other’s strengths. Have technologically savvy members manage power-ups while strong communicators direct positioning. Trusting one another’s abilities is key.
In the racing format, engagement can lag between turns. Fill this time by having a prompt for teams to discuss, like “What fictional business would you open?” Give 2-3 minutes for ideation before the next race question appears.
This fosters creativity and problem solving. Most importantly, it gets colleagues listening and learning about each other’s perspectives.
After several games, have groups reflect on takeaways. What communication styles improved? How did roles shift? Was it easier to generate ideas together over time? Identifying growth demonstrates the power of teamwork.
Blooket’s interactive games break the ice so meaningful connections can form. Coworkers, students, and friends will leave more unified, communicative, and collaborative after leveling up their teamwork abilities together.
