- Factor #5: Feeling of exclusion from the group (classmates)
Learning objectives:
To learn how to better solve problems.
To find innovative solutions for identified problem. To think how the limitations can influence on problem solution. |
Time:
The necessary time will vary depending on the number of participants, but is estimated between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
Necessary Materials:
None
Description of the activity:
- Split participants into groups of 3-5 people. Each group will try to find solution for the same problem.
- Ask each person to write down at least 5 solutions of the problem you are trying to solve. Each idea should be written down on separate post-it note.
- Each participant presents solution in a group and has 1 minute to tell a few words about each idea.
- Ask participants if there are any similar ideas in their group.
- Ask them to choose 4 ideas they perceive as most interesting and efficient.
- Give each group attached form (solution generator).
- Ask them to fill in the boxes: problem and solutions. Make it challenging and ask to write down just one short sentence, which explains solution.
- Ask groups to find out at least 8 things related with the idea which are necessary to implement it: who need to be involved, what kind of support is needed, are there any ideas how to promote it.
- At the end ask each group to present all ideas.
- Start discussion: are there any similar solutions, any unique?
- Choose together 4 ideas. If you have problem how to do it and it’s not obvious: give each participant 5 points that he/she can split between ideas: giving one point to 5 different solution, or 5 to one about which he/she thinks it is absolutely amazing.
- Mix groups.
- Give each group new form and ask them to write down a problem and 4 chosen solutions.
- Ask group to find out at least 8 things related with the idea which are necessary to implement it: who need to be involved, what kind of support is needed, are there any ideas how to promote it.
- Discuss ideas and descriptions. Prepare to each idea separate poster with short plant how it can be implemented.
