What we’ll bring
At least two of us for a class up to 30 to ensure that small teams and student gets the attention they need and deserve.
The Think Wrong Lab
We’ll invite each student to access the Think Wrong Lab prior to the class, throughout the class, and for following 90 days to provide a helpful platform and valuable resources for putting Think Wrong into practice.
We provide all the supplies and materials required by the class.
What we’ll need
A well-lit space with tables for teams and plenty of windows or wall space for hanging the large-format posters we work on.
Food & Beverage
We will burn a lot of calories—putting our brains and bodies to work—over long, intense days. So, we will work with you to select food and beverage options that fuel your students—rather than put them to sleep.
Each student should bring a laptop. We will bring a limited number of Chromebooks as back ups—we’ll just need to be able to access your network and your participant’s webmail.
To ensure students have access to the Think Wrong Lab, you’ll need to ask your IT group to whitelist it prior to the class. Please share this link with your request for whitelisting: https://thinkwrong.com/technical-info.
The Think Wrong Lab is also accessible from smartphone and tablets—students are welcome to use them in class to practice working across devices
We also like to show some videos, so a large, flat-screen monitor or digital projector is helpful.
Please, tell your participants why they have been invited to the class, and why it should matter to them and your organization.
Please make sure your participants clear their calendars. You are making the investment in them—so it is important that they each get the most out of their learning opportunity.
Also, because we do quite a bit of small team co-learning, it is important for each participant to be there for their team.
