Facilitating change in education
Hi everyone! Are there any other education/pedagogy specialists here? I'm working with a team of educators and an amazing school in the US to redefine their pedagogy and approach to teaching that reflects the needs of today's students. I am looking to take my work to other schools and perhaps expand our team of experts. I look forward to hearing from you.

On Monday 10th June at 11:00 Pacific Time, AI Education Connective will host our fourth Coffee Break roundtable, an informal space to build connection and community for professionals working in education and riding the wave of the impact of AI on our industry. We share stories, experiences, fears, hopes, resources and tools. Our goal is to discover the conversations people want to have and to provide the space for those conversations. What do you want to hear about? Who would you like to hear from? What would you like to speak about? Who would you like to speak to? If you’ve joined us before, please feel free to join again to keep the conversation going and to hear new perspectives. The world of AI is rapidly changing. New developments are popping up every day, and as we play around with it, we're learning more and more about what we want and don't want to do with it. If you’ve never joined us, we hope you’ll find a warm and welcoming space to share and discover perspectives on the impact of AI on education. Come along and meet the visionaries, innovators, facilitators, and enthusiasts who share their stories. Don't forget to bring your coffee! Please use the QR code to register for the event.
📣🤩 Calling All Coaches!
Our first sessions were a success!! Check out the first outputs, and here are the videos of our first practice! Thanks to everyone who took part, you were amazing! 🤩✨ In this first session we tackled the topic of “Onboarding new employees”, and will continue working with it through the next few weeks, as part of a Design Sprint sequence. Join us!! 😆🏁 💫 Here's the official Schedule of Practice Sessions … Save your spot! ⚡✨ We’re looking for facilitation coaches… All levels welcome! It’s so inspiring having so many colleagues interested and passionate in pursuit of new skills. After a bunch of practice sessions over the last few weeks, we’re convinced that with a safe space and a supporting team, it’s much easier to feel confident and take the next steps. For those of you already experienced in facilitation, consulting, and public speaking, this is a golden opportunity to take your game to the next level. By helping others practice these essential skills, you become a teacher, a guru, a guide. Isn’t that what we’re all aspiring to be? We need your help coaching these fellow facilitators in their next practice session. They need your knowing feedback, to quickly become aware of where they need to improve, and where they are rocking it. They look up to you, and would love the chance in the near future to co-facilitate your next client engagement. Better make sure they’re ready! We respect your time and other commitments, and will only require you to attend portions of a practice session. Spots are limited, and all those who accept the challenge will receive their colleagues’ undying love and appreciation. Help a hero. Be the guide! Tell us, what’s your coaching level?

Hi! Would love to be a part of this!
A taste of Design thinking?
Hey everybody – I have the opportunity to introduce design sprints as a solution creating activity to dozens of school leaders across New York. I will introduce them amidst a conversation about WEF 4.0 characteristics and I only have about 20 minutes to show (rather than tell) them about their effectiveness for leadership teams and as a potential methodology to engage students differently. Do any of you have suggestions for how I might actively engage this audience within a 20 minute time frame to “wet their whistles” with a desire to learn more? TIA

Hi Bill! Off the top of my head, I would have a highly engaging 20 minute-activity that gives voice to everyone in the room and displays divergent to convergent thinking. You could invent a scenario/product/service and create a pathway to consensus (or not) to illustrate the power of voice, agency, and communication.

Just saw this. It may give ideas:
What do you spend money on 💸
I'd love to know where Facilitators invest their money to elevate their sessions and businesses. Is it tools? Software? Continuous learning? Props & materials? Marketing? Hiring spaces? Working with co-facilitators? Or perhaps travel and networking? Let me know in the comments...

I haven't invested in anything yet other than a lot of thinking, re thinking, and planning.
Is there an engagement problem on Facilitator Club?
I've noticed over the last few months the level of engagement on here has dropped off, and some of the earlier leaders on the Leaderboard now rarely participate. It doesn't take much to appear on the Leaderboard. An average of 1 post per day over a month will have you on the 30-day Leaderboard... in the top 20 of over 3,500 members. Though, appearance on the Leaderboard is just one criterium to measure engagement. I took screenshots of the Leaderboard 7 days apart to see what the differences actually are. Take a look at the changes. Quite a lot on the 7-day, some shifts on the 30-day, and very little movement on the All-time board. So, what do you think could be added to the site to increase the level of ongoing engagement? The point system is meaningless by the time you get to my level and no incentive (I have about a year to go at my current rate of contribution to move up a level). What else do you think needs to be added here to maintain a higher level of engagement, particularly for those who have been on here more than a few months? I'm tagging those on the All-time Leaderboard to get their thoughts on this. @Kerri Price @Shannon Wagers @Will Stammers @Joao Ribeiro @Benedict Odjobo @Hassanein Ismail @Sam Pettersson @Jeff Panning @David Finnegan @Jakub Michalski @Rebecca Courtney @Ren Yee Quek @Andrea Browne @Salah Bouchma @Claus Höfele @Austin Govella @Alina Balan @LaYinka Sanni @Abdelrahman Hussien

@Jonathan Courtney Here we have the same passion, drive, and brilliance, but perhaps a different economy. Running away to Mexico and marrying the guy on the beach has its repercussions!
