Pass the Paper
The purpose of the virtual Pass the Paper activity is for participants to have an opportunity to connect synchronously through writing rather than speaking.
Minimal: Open a new google slides file and add a blank slide for each participant. You can also add a title slide and a directions slide if it would be helpful for participants to have a written version of the activity instructions. Make sure the google slides sharing settings are set to ‘anyone with the link can edit.’
10-15 minutes, depending on the length of the ’rounds’ and how long the debrief discussion takes.
This activity can easily be adapted to use more public or more private ‘papers.’ For example, the whole activity could be done in the open (on Twitter for example) by using tweets as the initial question and replies as the responses. It could also be done by private message or email for more privacy. It can also be adapted by changing the initial question and changing the response structure (changing the number of response rounds, changing the time intervals).
Minimal – access to google slides, video conferencing platform or phone connection.
This activity is one of a series of activities from Equity Unbound, focused on equitable online community building.Find out more
