Steps for the Activity

  1. We believe that peer-to-peer activities are the most powerful way to facilitate interaction, build networks, and collaborate. Successful activities are:

    • Participatory: Engaging and activating participants from the beginning and getting them making and doing, rather than listening and watching.
    • Purposeful: Working toward meaningful goals.
    • Productive: Well-planned so that concrete outcomes are achieved in the allotted time, and participants feel time was well spent.
  2. Pose some questions: What interests you? What is a story you would like to tell about it if you could? What exists on the web to help you make that story? Video? Images, Audio?
