Facilitated Brainstorming



This is a technique used on the Digiteen project, in Vicki's classroom, and at the Flat Classroom Conference to assist participants in understanding the phases of brainstorming (idea creation, idea selection, idea development.)

What are the roles of facilitators?

Lead Facilitator

Vicki Davis will serve as lead facilitator. She will interrupt the process every 10-15 minutes to guide you to the next step. If you follow the direction and move to the next phase, you will complete the assignment in the time allotted.

Facilitators

Other facilitators will move through the room to assist with generating ideas, however, they are just to propose ideas if you need help. Ideally, they will make sure you are on track and move on. Typically, they will not interrupt groups that are including everyone and have gained momentum. They will, however, encourage you to include all participants and move to the next phase of brainstorming if the group is "stuck" and not progressing forward. They may facilitate a move ahead if required. This is also used in the classroom when leading facilitated brainstorming sessions.
