Should we use Skype for these meetings??
Working on the plan
Visit to Fresno was helpful to understand the difficulties and access to the town
Fresno is not in the middle of the jungle, but it takes time to get there and is not easy to move on the road
Need to understand very clearly in the schedule where and who and how much it will cost
Have more clarity now for time and resources
Don’t want the project to look like a technical project i.e. how to build a beehive, or how to fix engines, rather a project to think about the future
The near future of this group of young students - combine artistic workshops with technical issues
E.g. visit farms, combine with artistic narrative approach - gather some artists
Including Medellin - Julieta - they have an urban orchard - lack of land
In Fresno - the opposite, lots of land but they don’t want to work on it
Conversations important for both groups
Planning 4 workshops - writing, orchards, photography, comics
Students will choose 4 or 5 themes - combine technical subjects in these workshops
Work in Medellin is easier - one group, already organised, easier to know what they want, not in a school model
In Fresno have to be more proactive, propose more, trial and “error”, have to follow the teacher’s lead (school model)
Planning a big workshop in Bogota or Medellin - have a group of students from Fresno to join as well
Flight tickets are quite expensive right now (3X) so travel is difficult, and Colombian peso is gaining value.
Might be better to have gathering in Medellin at Platohedro, which is a creative space - would be good for kids from Fresno to see what goes on there
Could someone from IDRC come to Colombia and be in the workshop? We will look into it - this would be in May or June
“The problem of the land” - a complex problem, of justice, who has the right to the land? Who owns the land?
IDRC/Learning Reflections site
Planning to embed the Storytelling Tool into a microsite
To gather stories from learners about learning, how we learn, barriers to learning, etc.
IDRC would like to have a codesign session using the tool in order to get feedback
This session could be on-site and/or remotely
Liam thinks there could be some connections across the TIG network both at a project level and more broadly at the TIGed level
How many people and what sort of timeline?
Could be using the tool and getting feedback at a more broad scale as we get it out there, but initially we’d like to get a smaller session
“REMOTE FRACTAL CODESIGN™” ;)
Connect with Create to Learn - but maybe test it out somewhat first
Teacher network as well - students and teachers engage in discussion about education system
Talanoa - storytelling for change/impact/dialogue - could also see having a connection
A wide range of people to participate
TIG staff could be a target group as well
Could also gather students from Colombia to use it remotely and/or to have a co-design session on-site in Colombia in May/June!
