To create effective and accessible teaching and learning one often has to create paradigm shifts that get educators to think outside of the square; to think deeply about what they do and why they do it. Musical chairs is a children's game that is often played in which a set of chairs is arranged in a line or semi circle. Music is played as the children dance around and it is when the music stops that the children rush to find a seat. Each time this is repeated, one or more chairs are removed; which means that children who can't get a seat, go 'out' until there is ultimately only one chair left with one 'winner'. This case writing looks at a session conducted for First year preservice teachers in their teacher training course.
