Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers | library life | Scoop.it

"I want to affirm that getting people connected at the beginning of a meeting is essential for creating an openness and willingness to challenge. Peter Block has influenced my thinking on this issue. He always says, “Connection before Content.” If a group is going to concentrate on a difficult issue, they need to learn who others are, the skills they bring, the experience they represent, and the values they hold. Stasser, who studies group performance, notes, “Group performance increases when everyone in a group is aware of each other member’s expertise.” But unfortunately, icebreakers, like those I’ve listed above, don’t accomplish that that goal.

"Happily there are alternatives to icebreakers that effectively build connections between members of a group. I will suggest five that I use, but first I want to share my rules of thumb for designing an activity that creates connection, because the rules of thumb are much more important than the specific activity you choose."

I am not a big fan of icebreakers. The article suggests to "connect" in a group, form community, activities have to be well-thought out. What is the gathering about? What does the group want to accomplish?

You must remember as a younger person those awful icebreakers at camp, school etc.  There are other options to help build connections in groups.

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | library life | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.

The Classroom or Library as a Maker Space Jackie Gerstein @jackiegerstein

The Classroom or Library as a Maker Space Jackie Gerstein @jackiegerstein | library life | Scoop.it
Makerspaces, Maker Education, STEM, and STEAM are gaining lots of traction in Kindergarten though college level education. Articles, resources on social media, and conference presentations on these topics are proliferating at a rate that most educators are now familiar with maker education.

Makerspaces like vocational shops and science labs are great additions to schools. They often contain the tools, machinery, and technologies associated with making – 3D printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, high tech robotics, vocational tech machinery. These are great for educational institutions and learners that can afford them.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, July 3, 9:01 AM

"Classroom educators and librarians may wonder how they might create spaces for playing, tinkering, making, collaborating, discussing, researching, and reflecting. First and foremost, they need to develop an innovator’s mindset, one outside of the box of what a classroom should look, sound, and be like. Second, practitioners need to become intentional in insuring that a full spectrum of making skills, attitudes, and knowledge is offered to learners." (By Jackie Gerstein)

Thank you Tom, I will check out this resource.  Adding transcripts of videos and recordings is an essential aspect of providing learners with "multiple means of representation", one of the principles of UDL that reduce barriers to learning. It is also very challenging to create and/or replicate.  The right tools help. I would be interested in feedback from others on this tool

Every human being is a part of society so how we encourage creativity, how we choose to be who we are, how we support those who are not the same as us and who add beauty to our lives makes a difference in how "society" influence what others think and do.
