Ice Cream/Broccoli: Reflection on Enjoyment and Value
The purpose of this activity is to invite reflection from participants/learners on what they consider enjoyable, what they consider valuable, and what activities/things they consider to be BOTH or NEITHER.
Learner self-reflection for their own learning; feedback to the teacher on what learners enjoy and find valuable; discussion among learners on differences between what they find enjoyable and/or valuable.
Explain to learners the concept of ‘Broccoli and Ice cream‘ as metaphors for value/enjoyment and invite them to discuss activities that give them value, enjoyment, both or neither. In the video demo, we don’t ask about the “neither,” but one participant suggests that we should.
It can take anything from 5 minutes to 30 minutes, depending on the size of group and how much sharing and discussion you do. In the video, it takes us about 15 minutes.
This can be done individually in writing instead of in groups. Students can write on Google slides (as in the video) as a group or individually.
Minimal – you could use Google slides to write, but the activity can be completed as an oral discussion.
