- Factor #5: Feeling of exclusion from the group (classmates)
|To learn how to better solve problems.
To find innovative solutions for identified problem.
To think how the limitations can influence on problem solution.
The necessary time will vary depending on the number of participants, but is estimated between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
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.
