In my future classroom a fun way to introduce the idea of networks to the students would be by creating a ‘network web’. The idea of a network web is for students to visually see the connection between them and their peers.
The students would stand in a circle and the teacher would start with a ball of string, holding onto the end piece. The teacher then proceeds by complementing a student on something they like about them (ie. “I like (student)’s work ethic), and then would pass the ball of string to that student. This process is repeated with each individual holding a section of the string to the angle it was received and given.
The teacher can adapt the network repersentation changing out ‘Complements’ for another idea.
