Description by EdSurge


” OFF THE WALL LEARNING is a “highly visual approach to sharing challenge-based informal learning activities” brought to you by the Institute of Play. (You may recall another one of its projects is to create an “edu” version of SimCity.) The aim of Off the Wall Learning is to reinvent activity facilitation by removing the do-as-I-say interaction between instructors and learners, and isolating acitivity instructions (in this case, on a wall poster) such that instructors and learners can approach the activity on equal footing. The first design iteration, conducted in concert with HIVE NYC, has produced this Water Filter Challenge poster and an inquiry-based exploration activity. They’ve even provided a template poster for educators looking to adapt their own activities. If creating graphic posters is outside of your comfort zone, check out which may help remove some of the anxiety.”
