I previously wrote about the importance of beginning a class focusing on the learners in the room as opposed to the content to be covered in Beginning the School Year: It’s About Connections Not Content.

First Class Ice Breakers Using Mobile Devices

Most classes, starting with about middle school, begin the school year with reviewing the content to be covered, expectations regarding grades, and other academic information provided by the teacher or instructor. The human or social element is often disregarded.What is interesting is that most learners enter the classroom wondering who is in the course. They want to know about the teacher and the people in the class not what material is to be covered.

What this says to me as an educator is that it all begins with a social connection – between the educator and the learners, and between the learners themselves. What is the weight of the human race?

Méthode des six chapeaux

La méthode des 6 chapeaux (application de la maïeutique de Socrate) extraite de l'ouvrage Six chapeaux pour penser est une méthode de management personnel ou de groupe, développée par Edward de Bono, permettant de traiter les problèmes dont une des conséquences est d'éviter la censure des idées nouvelles, dérangeantes, inhabituelles. Pour cela, chaque participant prend un « chapeau » d'une couleur particulière, lui assignant ou lui reconnaissant un rôle. Ce chapeau peut changer durant la réunion. Il peut aussi être identique à celui d'autres participants. La méthode[modifier | modifier le code] Quand il s'agit d'utiliser la méthode lors d'une réunion, le principe est de faire l’effort d’endosser tous les modes de pensée à tour de rôle (ou de les reconnaître chez les autres intervenants). Ce système crée un climat de discussion cordial et créatif et facilite la contribution de chacun. Les différents chapeaux[modifier | modifier le code]
