Ubuntu Cards invite connection through play while also offering metaphoric images to assist in reflection on learning. There are literally dozens of ways to use them for the purposes of inviting play, sharing and building connections.
Ubuntu is a Zulu word which means ‘I am because we are.’ The spirit of Ubuntu is about interconnectedness. Accordingly, the cards are a great tool for endless opportunities for group interaction and creative play.
There are 54 cards in the pack, featuring a unique, single object on one side, and a series of eight smaller objects on the reverse. A set of instructions accompany the cards to guide you in at least 13 different ways to use the cards for the purposes of connection and reflection.
Introduced to the programming world in 2011, Ubuntu Cards quickly became playmeo’s most popular, biggest-selling activity prop.
Proceeds from the sale of Ubuntu Cards are donated to the Edge of Leadership Program (an initiative of High 5 Adventure Learning Center, the developer of the Cards), which is based on the premise that everyone has the potential to be a leader.
