Type of strategy: Brainstorming and DiscussionClosings and Wrap UpProcessing

Learning styles: ES: Extraversion and Sensing

Participants use artifacts from a bag to summarize what they have learned.


  • Provide enough bags for each table or grouping of participants. Each bag should have between 5-8 items to choose from. Items can be generic in nature or thoughtfully chosen. 
  • Participants take turns going around the table summarizing what they have learned or what they would like to learn more about, using 4 items from the bag as artifcats or talking points. 

Alternative:  Use an item from the bag to create a metaphor of how it relates to their learning.
