Part of these packages: Learning in teams
Supported by these technologies:
Students write their findings, the information and the data they collected on pieces of paper and post-it notes, and visually group them. This is a professional method used to analyze collected information and data, and to identify relationships between findings.
Recommended frequency: at least two times
Make sure that everyone collected the data or information they set out to find.
Arrange the equipment: Prepare pens, paper, post-it notes, tape, scissors and glue.
Plan the space: Arrange for walls or large papers for students to group and stick their paper notes on.
Have a pedagogically meaningful conversation with the students about the data they collected: What did they collect, and how is the information meaningful for their project?
For easy access, ask the students to move all of their information and data into one location, or to identify all sources.
View and discuss the data with the students.
Students write all information and data in the form of headlines or short sentences or figures on post-it notes or small pieces of paper, and group their notes.
Remind the students to visually present relationships between the notes when grouping the data, for example, by drawing lines between information, placing notes hierarchically, or other spatial arrangements.
Students write titles for the created groups, and document emerging project ideas.
View and discuss the spatial arrangements with the students.
Comment on improvements.
Learning in Teams: Ask the students to grade their teammates’ contributions. You may use the student grades as help for forming your own assessment.
