Conversation webs

Here’s an idea to visually represent conversations in break-out groups.  For each group (5-7) provide a large sheet of paper, marker pens, a ball of coloured wool or twine and sticky tape.

The first person to speak takes the wool and tapes it to the paper.  The next person to speak takes the wool and tapes it down in front of them.  And so on – back, forth, across as it happens.

The ‘mapping’ opens up the possibility of a balance of contributions. The webs provide food for debriefs. In this case, the key elements were also captured by a person sitting near the current speaker.  The notes served as a reminder for group members when reporting back.
