    (sit by people who look friendly)

    Together well cover three subjects:

    1. Discuss and practice card modeling

    2. Basic types of card models and their uses

    3. Modeling in collaborative work sessions

    Modeling using index cards or stickies

    allows everyone to be involved,

    and allows us to build a more malleable

    model

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    10/68

    10

    It looks like this

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    11/68

    11

    Lets give it a try

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    12/68

    12

    Act I: Silent Brainstorming

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    13/68

    13

    Pick up 4 blue or purple index cards,

    and a thick Sharpie marker

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    14/68

    14

    When I say go write down your 3

    favorite movies on the index cards

    using the markers, one movie per card

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    15/68

    15

    Not yet wait till I say go

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    16/68

    16

    Use the 4th card in case you make a

    mistake, or choose to sneak in an extra

    movie

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    17/68

    17

    Go!

    Using a Sharpie marker write your 3

    favorite movies on blue or purple index

    cards, one title per card

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    18/68

    Is everyone almost done?

    Ok, pens down then.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    19/68

    If you havent already, arrangeyourselves into to work groups of 6

    or so.

    Say Hi to everyone in your

    workgroup.

    (OK thats enough of that.)

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    20/68

    20

    Together, as a group youll build a

    favorite movie model.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    21/68

    21

    Act II: Modeling

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    22/68

    22

    Within your group and one at a time

    read your movies out loud to the group

    and place them on the table in front of

    you where you can all see them.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    23/68

    23

    Working together, arrange the moviesby affinity movies that seem similar

    place together in a cluster, movies thatseem different place farther apart from

    the others.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    24/68

    24

    Really similar really close,

    Really different really far apart.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    25/68

    25

    Lets take a few minutes with this.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    26/68

    26

    Go!

    Within your group and one at a time read your

    movies out loud to the group and place

    them on the table in front of you where

    you can all see them.

    Together arrange the movies by affinity

    movies that seem similar, place together in

    a cluster. Movies that seem different place

    farther apart.

    Really similar really close, really different

    really far apart.

    Is everyone almost done?

    Ok, stop modeling.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    28/68

    28

    With luck you have a few piles, or

    clusters of movie titles

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    29/68

    29

    Now, as a team, choose a suitable name

    for each cluster.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    30/68

    30

    It may be natural to think of simple

    categories but instead, try to think ofdistilling statements like:

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    31/68

    31

    Our team likes quirky comedies

    or

    Were not afraid to admit we like

    Disney movies

    or

    Mindless action films are rotting ourbrains

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    32/68

    32

    Where categorizations label whats in a

    cluster, distilling statements stand-in

    for the cluster distill it into

    meaningful information.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    33/68

    33

    Together as a team, using a Sharpiemarker and a yellow index card, write

    a distilling statement for each cluster.

    (Yes, one card all by itself counts as a cluster.)

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    34/68

    34

    Ready?

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    35/68

    35

    Go!

    Together as a team, using a Sharpie

    marker and a yellow index card, write

    a distilling statement for each cluster.

    Good distilling statements stand-in for

    the cluster distill it into meaningful

    information.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    36/68

    36

    Is everyone almost done?

    Ok, just one more step.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    37/68

    37

    Act III: Prioritization

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    38/68

    38

    Now lets find important parts of our

    model by asking a question

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    39/68

    39

    If you were stranded on a desert island

    with food, water, a bicycle powered DVD

    player, and 3 movies, what 3 movieswould you want them to be?

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    40/68

    40

    Wait! Dont answer yet!

    Pick up three wrapped candies from the

    table.

    (Any self respecting conference should have a small bowls of

    mediocre candies on the table)

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    41/68

    41

    Use the wrapped candy to

    vote.

    Place your votes directly on the

    blue movie cards

    (You can change your mind if you want thats why we used

    candies as voting tokens.)

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    42/68

    42

    Go!

    If you were stranded on a desert island with

    food, water, a bicycle powered DVD player,

    and 3 movies, what 3 movies would you want

    them to be?

    Using three wrapped candies per

    person vote for your 3 movies.

    Place your votes directly on the

    blue movie cards.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    43/68

    43

    Whew!

    Ok, were done.

  • 7/31/2019 Patton Collaborative Cardplay

    Lets talk about what we just did.
