Tips for running this activity online

  • Pick an online whiteboard tool that allows you to use a large, zoomable canvas.
  • Add a large selection of images of a variety of different objects to the board.
  • If you’re not using an online whiteboard, we’d recommend using a collaboration tool such as Google Docs to collect the images together and facilitate sharing and peer review.
  • When facilitating group discussion, we’d recommend that participants use non-verbal means to indicate they’d like to speak. You can use tools like Zoom’s nonverbal feedback tools, a reaction emoji, or just have people put their hands up.The facilitator can then invite that person to talk.
