4.4.2 Activity 2

Description of the Learning Activities


Timing (minutes)

Materials/ Equipment Required

This activity draws upon the resource Mobile rules, included in the DiLitE Practice Toolkit, and encourages learners to engage with multimedia learning and collaborative work to produce an agreement on digital devices usage in the classroom.


Beforehand, the practitioner creates a PowerPoint, Word or Canva template, where the adult learners are to work collaboratively to elaborate the classroom technology usage procedures.

The practitioner creates a folder in Google Drive, One Drive, or other cloud service, to store the mentioned file, as well as the materials that are to be gathered by the adult learners.

The practitioner explains the activity and invites the adult learners to form two groups.

Each group is assigned to look for material (text and images) on classroom technology usage rules/guidelines. For that end, the adult learners must consider two dimensions: expectations regarding digital devices usage; rules for digital devices usage.

The adult learners are also informed that they must store all their findings in the Google Drive folder (20 minutes).

The practitioner assigns a representative of each group with the task of working simultaneously in the file, in the respective subject areas, to create the final version of the agreement on digital devices usage in the classroom (20 minutes).

Using a video conferencing platform after the initial presentation to explain, the practitioner divides the two groups in distinct virtual rooms, allowing them to work separately, while he/she provides the necessary guidance and assistance.

The adult learners can share the gathered images in the video conferencing platform and choose a representative to store them in the Google Drive and another to edit the agreement on digital devices usage in the classroom.  

Then, the participants return to the initial room to see the result of their collective effort. Very little adaptation needed – probably best done asynchronously over a set period, rather than in one session.
