Developing trust in the class room

This exercise will help your pupils develop trust, friendships and corporation in school.

  1. Spread out the Dialoogle cards.
  2. Ask the pupils to pair up. Ask them to find a card each that describes a specific teacher, pupil, or classmate that they trust. Decide in the group whether the chosen people should be anonymous.
  3. Ask the pupils to present the card to their partner and relate the picture on the card to the traits and actions of the chosen individual.
  4. Ask the pupils to form new pairs and make the same presentation. Repeat this with new pairs again and again, as long as there is time.
  5. Spread out the cards again.
  6. Ask the pairs from the last round of presentations to find a new card that illustrates an action they could take personally to create more trust in the school or classroom.
  7. Divide the pupils into 3-5 groups. Have them share their ideas within the group.
  8. Ask each group to choose the best idea.
  9. When every group has chosen, they present their idea to the rest of the participants. Ask them to place the picture cards representing their idea on a row one meter apart.
  10. Ask each pupil to stand by the idea they think is the best. The ideas with the most support will be developed and applied, either in groups or in plenum.
  11. Make the participants decide WHO does WHAT WHEN?

In small groups of 2-3 persons, you can ask the participants to begin by doing the exercise by themselves.



Innovation is discovering, developing and applying new ideas in known workflows and processes. Give innovation a boost with images.



90% of the brain’s sensory input comes from visual sources. Images start thought tracks in the brain. If they cross each other in new combinations, new ideas emerge.



Creativity unfolds when we use imagery and try to combine different and seemingly independent motifs with each other.
