Evaluation and development of feature days and school projects
This exercise is great for developing the structure of projects and feature days in school or at the daycare centre.
Spread out the Dialoogle picture cards.
Ask the participants to pair up, preferably with someone they don’t know very well.
One person in each pair chooses two cards. One should illustrate an experience from a class, a project or a feature day that was particularly productive, useful or interesting. The other card should illustrate something that could inspire the teacher to change something in the next class or project.
Ask each pair to form groups of four with another pair and tell each other about their chosen picture cards.
Ask the groups to choose one or two cards (depending on time constraints and the number of participants) to present to the whole group.
Have all the participants pick out the best ideas and rate them (1st choice, 2nd choice…)
At the next class or project, you place the card representing the no. 1 idea in the centre of the table. This picture card will serve as a catalyst for turning the idea into a good habit.
Once you have established the first idea as a good habit, you can add a second picture card to the table. It may take a while to implement the first good habit; continue to use the first picture card until it succeeds.
In small groups of 2-3 persons, you can ask the participants to begin by doing the exercise by themselves.
