Tips for Centres (from previous events)
  • it's not like a regular workshop - some may come and go - some may stay - may return a few times to you
  • connect with their questions
  • welcome activity, challenge cards, as them what they'd like to learn
  • you may use your wiki page as a way to direct people for an overview or a few activities
  • people vote with their feet - nothing personal if they leave they just need something else at that time
  • model how we've learned this stuff - promoting self-directed learning and empowering teachers to learn beyond the day
  • share some classroom connections and exemplars
  • having some slides cycling if you don't need the projector might help catch people up if they come mid stream

Infrastructure:InternetOne wired connection at each centre (or maybe just one at the critical centres - like media streaming centres)
PowerPower grid will be laid to support the power needs of the attendees and their laptops12 outlets per centre (facilitator laptop + Projector + 10 participants) - comings and goings will accommodate powering up
Audio/video
Screens will be provided!

Projectors: we will muster up out own projectors rather than renting them (see request above!)
Speakers: Facilitators to BRING own small speakers if req'd. Gets noisy with industrial strength speakers. Or??

Layout:
Similar to this
