The topic of #eduhubdays18 is collaboratively shaping the future of education. Thinking about the power of social media and other digital platform for enabling dialogues, learning from each other and building communities, a thought that naturally came to me was facilitating a session related to the use of one or more technologies that have a positive impact on how we work and learn with each other.
Reflecting on what topic to facilitate a session about, I realize that between November 23rd, when I signed up to participate at the event, and today, my thoughts have moved a little away from technology. Why? I think that partly, the reason is that – in contrast to many other events that I participated at in other communities – I experienced that relatively few people, who participated at eduhub days I participated at in the past, use, for example, Twitter to share knowledge / ideas with each other before, during, and/or after the event.
So what I have in mind for an #eduhubdays18 session is one that focuses less on technology and more on human values. During this session, I would like to help participants discover values they have. To do that, I plan to suggest to participants to use the questions below. More concretely, I will invite participants to 1) get together in groups of two people, 2) ask each other some or all of the questions, and 3) help each other extract the most important values of each person which result from the dialogues.
The reason why I publish this posting well in advance of #eduhubdays18 is that I would like to give you the opportunity to reflect on the topic and, if you are interested, communicate with others about values. In flipping this session, I naturally also welcome you to reach out with any ideas you may have to improve the session.
Greetings to you all,
