How face-to-face collaboration can help encourage a discussion of ideas that is honest, open and empathic.

  • An open space with a relaxed environment that encourages movement when discussing topics that are posted by someone, or will be posted by others
  • Flexible seating, movement, and resources to fiddle around with as students think and brainstorm
  • Illicit reactions and feedback

Share research or student experiences that informed your idea!

Design thinking, healthy discussion and debate in a maker space that is relaxed and open

Hi Fred,

First of all, thanks for participating in this collaboration between the Teachers Guild and ISTE. We really appreciate your contributions!

We’re in the last week of the build phase of the challenge on digital citizenship so it’s time to fine tune your idea before final voting begins next week.

Here are some things to consider as you continue to build on your idea:
- is your idea clear and will it inspire action from other teachers?
- would it be easy for a teacher to incorporate your idea about digital citizenship in their classroom?
- does your idea include some component of research and are there shareable resources?
- is your idea student-centered and does it promote agency?

Thanks,
Paul
