100 great ideas for smart learning

This is the workshop presentation I use in a rapid idea generation workshop. Participants work in pairs and use A5 paper forms that require each person to capture the idea in the form of a scenario description. After the workshop the forms are transcribed (use Dragon Dictate app!) and sent back to the people named on each form to invite them to think about it further and write up the cases/ideas in more detail.
