Learners generate ideas and then collaboratively group ideas to identify big ideas.
- Learners respond to an open-ended question by recording their ideas on individual sticky notes.
- They work together to affix their sticky notes to the wall or a window in small groups, clustering ideas that are similar.
- New ideas are placed close to clusters they are similar to, which sorts the sticky notes into groups that are related.
- As more sticky notes are added, learners can sort and regroup the ideas.
