Creating commonalities, interests and sharing is an essential part of communication and collaboration. Use this get to know you strategy that taps into our creativity.

Participants/students create a paper colorful poster using paper and pens or infographic tools.

Directions:

  1. Provide supplies and online tools.
  2. Give a choice to create the poster using tactile colored pens and paper or on electronic tool such as infographics.
  3. Participants have 20-60 minutes to create, depending on your agenda.
  4. You can use any Poster components. Some examples:
    • ​​Your favorite class activities you do EVERY year, 
    • The people and places you love to learn from and 
    • Your favorite apps. 
  5. Once posters are created, allow for sharing.  Either break the group into teams of three-five, or if it is a get to know you classroom activity, spread the sharing out over the course of a week. Each person has two minutes to share, while showing their poster or electronic infographic.
