Big image

What themes do we see in common?

As a whole group, we'll use the RED hexagons to identify emerging themes from your visual representations. (One copy per team!)

Do: Hexagonal Thinking with PD in mind

1. As a whole group, we'll use the YELLOW hexagons to dream about what PD could be. Each team will record one idea per hexagon.

2. As a team, use the BLUE hexagons to 'bridge the gap' between our present truth (RED) and the dream (YELLOW). One strategy per hexagon!

3. Connect the BLUE hexagons to the RED and YELLOW to create a hexagonal map, moving from present truth to our dream for the future.
