Inspired by new sharing knowledge models that facilitate exchange of views between professionals in a very short period of time (8 minutes), this concept aims to facilitate creative dialogue between young people.
Speed dating for artists, curators e other professionals is a method specially adjusted for the world of art, promoting fast networking and offering light-speed career opportunities. I would start asking them which kind of knowledge they would be pleased to share: a particular drawing technique, a musical instrument, photography , poetry?
Let the current of energy move the conversation out into the interwebs!
Note to self…This may be a super useful activity after lunch. Speed dating was used in a chat session by @Braz74 weeks ago and @Tracie GCain and I facilitated its use during a technology PD session.
The Impetus Instruction technology coaches who care about their audiences are always looking for ways to spice up the mostly boring “sit and get” sessions that have become the norm.
Share, share, share via verbal commentary, on the spot blogging, tweeting, instagraming…Participants can then exchange these cards quickly as they move on to the next person.They should also have name tags of course, but the contact card named above might be a more lasting artifact.If some information is exchange that piques your curiosity, then students or staff should exchange twitter handles or email addresses or somehow identify each other.It might be useful to set up a Padlet to allow those who are interested in similar topics or exchanges to post experiences or reflections in groupings (much like the beginning part of an edcamp).
