FACILITATOR'S PAGE

This page is for the centre facilitators - not really for participants. But, we are leaving it available to you, so that you can see the 'big picture', if you are interested. Enjoy!

Here is the webinar for facilitators that we had on June 20th in case you missed it or had to leave early!

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
  • Note: Remember, 'direct instruction' is not the enemy. Some people infer that when they hear that the 'learner should be in control'. In fact, "direct instruction is often desired, necessary and awesome if embedded within a constructivist, learner-driven environment." A learner may request that you 'teach' them something directly. This, by definition, demonstrates the locus of control being in the hands of the learner. Direct instruction as eyes glaze over - sucks. LOL

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 our 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??
