We have come to become so addicted to gadgets that we are losing the human interaction which is important for creativity. Our idea was to design a space that will bring people together to "connect" with each other.

Thank you for suggesting to help, Tom! We plan to prototype this Tuesday and we will share the results here.

Thank for the comment Anne Laure.

We will look into the option of combining bags. Just to clarify what we had in mind about the Impossible and No rules bag. Those are actually representing opposite conditions. Impossible refers to ideas that the person would probably eliminate because they can not be easily and realistically be executed and are not practical.
The No rules bag is more imaginary and can include ideas that don't consider physics laws such as gravity, and can include things like teleporting from places. That's why we put it with the magician bag.

We believe that after the first time we prototype and test, the uses of the bags and the need to combine them would be clearer.

 The idea of the teachers' use of the bags is aimed towards three main goals:

1. Role playing is not only for kids.
2. Keep classes interesting and have students curious about what type of teacher will show up at a certain class/day.
3. Allow teachers to lead by example.

Those bags can actually be used in many settings across all ages, for example, team building activities in organizations, workshops, ice breakers and more.The content of the bag can and should be adjusted accordingly.

Even in school ( what we chose to focus on) the bags can be used in a verity of ways. They can rotate and be used in different combinations. Can be used for specific things, like situations when the class need to come up with ideas, or on an ongoing basis, once a week. They can also be used to solve conflicts by having the class divided to the groups which experience conflicts, and each group should have the bag of the other side in order to get the other group's perspective and point if view. It can also be interesting to use the bags to teach about different cultures and use them as learning tool. For example, a bag can contain information about a specific culture, the person who get the bag would need learn about the culture and then participate in a class discussion as a member of that culture.

We plan to prototype and try it this week with group of students.

We are very optimistic about it:)
