Tips & Tricks
- enter Topic info as a Question?
- always use the links on the application to move back and forth, not the refresh button on your browser
- number the topics with 10, 20, 30, to allow for reordering, etc.
- change the Topic Mode to be the Group Chat Mode
- Click on the Enter Box, and then that makes NO Link - i.e., creating inactive links
- sneak way in: on the Facilitator's screen is to click on the flipchart... you can get in... (and change the topic mode as Group Chat (you can then see the group chatty icon - for orientation of the Facilitator)
- Pencil - Editing
- Flipchart - Working on the Flipchart
- Creating the Question / Opportunity for Reprhasing
- Before we let our participants loose on the Question - ask it, answer it before the participants do (leave at least one (1) good answer in the question:
- You may rephrase the question - Caveat: don't lead the participants down one path, because you're guiding...
- test the question
- modelling the answer - type of info you need, and the detail you require
- An Agenda Topic = Flipchart
- ALWAYS PRESS "SAVE & REFRESH" -
- the flipchart will update when you add an idea; add a comment or "save and refresh"
(default is the way the participants see it)
