“What words do you associate with the phrase, digital age learning culture?”
That was the question colleagues and I posed to a group of over 100 educational leaders attending a workshop earlier this month. We asked them to respond in the form of a brief silent conversation. Each table of eight people had one large sheet of chart paper and one pen per person. The instruction was, in stream-of-consciousness style, write down all the words and phrases that come to your mind when you hear, “digital age learning culture.” Participants could pause, look at what others had written, and add additional words until time was up.
It’s interesting to see the results. But before I reveal them, take a minute to try it yourself.
Now, watch this 30-second video to get a flavor of what people wrote.
